Full Time

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 Bell & Bottle is situated just off the Blackpool road, directly between Blackpool and Preston and just 11 miles away from the Blackpool Tower.  The pub has recently benefitted from a major refurbishment, with the installation of a bar area and carvery deck, which is used at weekends and for functions, further expanding the strong customer base at this large volume pub-restaurant. Included within the bar area is a large screen TV which includes BT Sport channels.  There is an outside patio area suitable for dining as well as a large car park.

The Bell & Bottle caters for everyone, including families. There are various sports teams throughout the week and also averages around 10 teams attending for its quiz night every Sunday. The pub also caters for a variety of functions and large events, with the benefit that the back area of the pub can be roped off specifically for this use.

Average weekly net sales: £20,000

Wet/ dry split: 30/70

Average number of meals served per week: 2000

Brand: Two for One

The pub is crying out for a manager who will invest time in the strong team in place to take them to the next level. It would also be beneficial to share a passion for carvery as this is a feature to the business which is yet to be fully exploited.

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 (The Bell & Bottle has 3 bedrooms with combined kitchen dining and living room) 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!
