Assistant Management Couple
The Fox at Peasemore

Are you a couple with significant, combined hospitality experience?

Are you hard working, ambitious and eager to learn?

Do you dream of running your own pub one day?

If the answer is YES, then our award-winning country pub, The Fox at Peasemore, may have the perfect opportunity for you as we are currently looking to recruit a full-time, live-in, assistant management couple, with the potential to train and develop you into tenants in the not-too-distant future!

Who we’re looking for:

We are looking for an ambitious, customer service obsessed couple who would like to join a small, dedicated team of hospitality professionals, running a highly successful country pub in Berkshire. You will be a team player, but capable of leadership, with a passion for learning and developing your skills, and excellent communication skills. We are looking for a couple who could be the future of our business, so only those serious about having a successful, long term career in hospitality need apply.

Front-of-house Assistant Manager: One of you will take on the role of front-of-house assistant manager, supporting us in the day-to-day responsibilities of running the pub, bar and food service, as well as supervising the rest of the front-of-house team in their duties. You will be friendly, conscientious and have excellent customer service skills, with least 2 years of hospitality experience, experience behind the bar, and a working knowledge of basic cellar skills.

Sous-Chef: The other will join our experienced Owner Phil, as his Sous-Chef, learning how to prepare our menu, and produce great quality, homemade food for our customers. We operate with a small but high-performing team, and so you will immediately become a key member of our kitchen team, taking on responsibility for lunch time service as soon as you are ready, and with the opportunity to progress quickly up to Head Chef level quickly, dependant on your experience and skills. You will be focused, eager to learn, and hardworking, ideally with 2 -3 years of experience as Chef de Partie, Sous-Chef or in another similar role.

What we’re offering:

Much more than a regular live-in pub job, this is a truly unique opportunity to learn from the best in the business. If you are ambitious and passionate about a career in hospitality, and have aspirations to run your own business, this opportunity could well be a fast-track path to achieving that dream.

You will be personally overseen and developed by Phil & Lauren Davison, award-winning licensees with over 30 years of experience running pubs and restaurants. You will be shown what really makes a pub business thrive, taught effective pub marketing skills, and how to operate the business so that it drives real, consistent profit.

 A competitive joint salary c£48,000 plus…

  •  Free live-in, ensuite accommodation on site
  • Free meals when on-shift
  • Two full days off per week (we close Monday & Tuesday)
  •  Extensive training and development
  • Potential to explore Pub Tenancy opportunity within 9-18 months

How to apply:

If this sounds like the ideal opportunity for you and your partner, please email both of your CVs to along with a short covering letter, outlining your reasons for applying, and why you think we should consider you for this role. Please also include a recent photograph of you both. We look forward to hearing from you.

Phil & Lauren Davison
