The Horse and Groom are looking for an experienced Assistant Manager to join the management crew. As an Assistant Manager you are a key member of the pub management team and will be expected to support the Manager as the ‘right hand’ person in all aspects of sharing responsibility for the day to day running of the pub. You will also assume responsibility for the pub when the Manager is not on the premises with the help of the rest of the management team.
Helping to run a Brunning and Price pub is a multi-facetted career: you’ll need to be a real foodie; have a real passion for decent beer and wine; enjoy looking after others and help build and direct a happy crew. The role will therefore be very hands-on and extremely varied encompassing people management, food and drink, customer service, pub maintenance and day to day financial administration.
It sounds like a tall order, but in truth we are able to offer a lot of support, and at the end of the day the most important quality we look for in all our people is strength of personality. We like fun characters who set the bar high and have an eye for detail.
The Horse and Groom has been serving the needs of locals and passers-by alike for some 300 years, the building exudes character and atmosphere from every beam and flagstone and inside is a jumble of cosy and comfortable rooms where you'll find decent cask ales, a carefully chosen wine list, and a simple but tasty menu with fresh ingredients sourced locally wherever possible.
All of our pubs are featured in the Good Pub Guide and for us it’s all about serving fresh, simple, high quality traditional dishes extremely well. Our menu has a spine of freshly prepared, classic British dishes, complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world: in other words, modern British cookery. Our passion lies in finding quality ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way.
We’ll reward you with a salary package from £19,000 - £21,000 plus tips and company benefits and you’ll be part of a successful, growing company who have been awarded Pub Group of the Year on five occasions.
