General Manager - Highwayman


At Marston's we have been running pubs and brewing our famous beers for over 180 years so we know a thing or two!

We offer something for everyone; from the local watering hole to premium pub restaurants our estate is vibrant and varied.

We are a growing business constantly on the lookout for new talent to join us and be part of the success story!



The pub is set in the beautiful, rural destination of Oswestry.  Central and well renowned for its interesting mix of independent shops, restaurants and pubs, this market town also plays host to artistic and cultural events throughout the year.


The pub is community based, but mainly attracts diners, proving popular for all major occasions on the calendar. The pub also has the ability to host large private functions. The Highwayman enjoys a growing carvery trade and a new menu recently launched. There is potential to drive trade later in to the evening with TV facilities installed and drinking trade with room for improvement.

Average weekly net sales: £13,000

Wet/ dry split: 40/60

Average number of meals served per week: 1250

Brand: Heritage Carvery

The successful candidate should be highly driven as this site benefits from a passionate team in place all hungry to develop under the successful applicant. High standards and a desire to drive sales will be key to the future success of this pub.



We like to treat our employees like our family so we offer the best in employee benefits:


  • A fantastic bonus scheme
  • Living accommodation on site (Spacious 4 bedroom accommodation is included with this pub although an off site living allowance is also available as an option) and your bills covered*
  • 20% discount on Marston's food and hotels with our Privilege Card
  • A pension scheme to help you save for the finish line
  • Private healthcare to keep you in tip top condition
  • Childcare vouchers so your little ones are safe and sound
  • Our online discount scheme, Marston's R£wards, so you can treat yourself

*(excluding council tax)



As an experienced Manager you will know the ins and outs of managing a branded business: from stock control to driving sales you will be at the top of your game. You won't necessarily need to know how to tap a cask or run a kitchen, we can help with those skills but you will be able to motivate and inspire your team to deliver unbeatable customer service. Confidence and personality are crucial in our pubs!
