Nicholson’s are currently looking for an experienced Kitchen Manager to lead the kitchen team at the Eagle and Child in Oxford! The Eagle and Child is just a short stroll from Cornmarket Street, Oxford University and St Johns College. Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
The Eagle and Child lays claim to a number of interesting literary connections. J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and fellow writers met here and dubbed themselves 'The Inklings'. They nicknamed the pub 'The Bird and Baby'. A public house since 1650, our hostelry takes its name from the crest of the Earls of Derby. During the Civil War, our building was used as the playhouse for Royalist soldiers.
This is a very exciting opportunity to join the Nicholson’s team and the wider Mitchells & Butlers group.
