Kitchen Careers







Bar and waiting staff - Part Time

Competitive hourly rate plus tips and benefits 

Fancy working behind the bar rather than propping it up?

One of our lovely team is moving on to greener pastures so we're in need of someone to join our team on a time basis. You don’t need to have experience (though it always helps) as we’ll teach you everything you need.

We're part of Brunning & Price, a great group who believe pubs should be beautiful buildings offering a warm welcome, good cask ales, freshly cooked food, great wine and a shelf full of fantastic whiskies and wonderful gins.

We offer the freedom of a great independent 'local pub' built on the idea that the most important thing is happy people (both customers and team) but with the financial stability and savvy know-how of a bigger group.

Oh. and we like beer. A lot.

If that sounds like your cup of tea (or G&T) then send us a copy of your CV or drop by the pub and say hello - we'd love to hear from you.

  • Always push for the best quality and consistency
