Shepherd Neame have an exciting opportunity for a proven General Manager to join our team and take on the successful running of the Inn on the Pond, Nutfield.

We currently operate over 60 distinctive, fast paced and busy retail outlets offering excellent food and a wide range of award winning ales across London and the South East of England.

The Inn on the Pond is a traditional English pub sat in the beautiful countryside, with views directly over Nutfield Cricket Pitch. Following a complete internal and external refurbishment in the last few years, this destination dining pub currently operates on a 60% food and 40% Liquor basis and it has great outdoor areas in order to capitalise on the alfresco dining trade in the summer months.
