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

We are an independent family brewery and pub operator based in Faversham, Kent, and dating back over 300 years we are also Britain’s oldest brewer. 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.

Recently refurbished with a fresh contemporary feel and offering a traditional British style cuisine with a twist, the Limes can accommodate approximately fifty covers in our main bar and a further forty covers in our separate restaurant. Upstairs we have our Mountbatten event suite which allows us to cater for private dining, events and parties for up to fifty covers.

We need a Manager that is enthusiastic about our sector, that has bags of personality and that loves what they do!
