Welcome to Urban Leisure Group

Great people are at the core of what we do so we always want to hear from people who share our passion for great food made from sustainable, local products, remarkable drinks, and genuine, big-hearted service. 

We recognise and reward excellent work & creativity with some of the best benefits in the business. 

  • Competitive hourly rates and salaries with great bonus potential.
  • An extra holiday day for each year of service.

Food & Drink

We love fresh ingredients, great beer, exciting cocktails and interesting wine. We look for sustainability, seasonality and quality and are proud to work with local producers wherever possible. We brew our own beers and source most of our ingredients direct from organic, UK farms, Brixham day boat fisherman and small producers like Isle of Olive on Broadway Market, Mr Chauhdry's bakery on Ridley Road and Local Honey from Queens Park. Our chefs are imaginative, creative and driven to connect with food at every stage - from producer to plate. 


We're committed to helping our people progress in their career so many of our Managers have worked their way up from the bar or floor. With focused training, continued career support and bespoke personal development plans there's loads of opportunity to climb the hospitality ladder. Get in touch to find out about joining the team.
