About the pub

The Blaina Wharf is a food-led community pub which has recently been refurbished to an amazing standard both inside and out. The pub currently trades at around £40k a week, 60% of which comes from food sales.

With the recent investment and a strong team in place, this pub is a sleeping giant and we estimate that sales of £45k should be achievable. The Blaina Wharf is famous for a great beer garden and a popular weekly quiz, and creating further reasons to visit will help to build sales.

We're on the hunt for a pub manager with a strong food focus, preferably with proven experience of delivering over 2,000 covers a week in a carvery site. Our ideal candidate should be sales focussed and be able to demonstrate a reputation for great guest experience.

This position includes live-in accommodation in the form of three bedroom private quarters, recently redecorated as part of the investment. Apply now, this opportunity won't be available for long!

Brimming with energy and ideas, you’ll add touches of your personality to your pub and think of new ways to delight and excite your customers. You’ll thrive off growing your business and have a ‘lead from the front’ mentality and passion for nurturing your team.

As a General Manager you’ll:

  • Care about finding, growing and engaging your team.
  • Be accountable for running all aspects of your pub.
  • Be passionate about doing the right thing for your staff and your customers.
  • Dream big and think differently about new ways to increase sales and growth.
  • Celebrate and create a buzz by sharing enjoyable experiences.

A day in the life...

Hi, I'm Lewis

My induction with Marston’s was tailored so I visited sites that were going to be similar to mine.

I spent time with a ‘buddy’ manager from a nearby site – he was a great guy and really honest and talked to me about the culture of Marston’s as well as the day to day running of the business.

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support.

Dedicated support

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support, including the recruitment and training teams.

Opening a new build pub

On the opening day there was so many people coming in but I wasn’t worried as I had every type of support there to help it run smoothly. The whole board came down for a meal at my pub, the CEO and the Managing Director are really nice people and down to earth too!
