As a General Manager in our Pub & Dining brand, you have the ultimate opportunity to treat the pub as your own. Every pub in our portfolio is unique, offering something for everyone, with our seasonal pub classics, exceptional service and expertly chosen drinks ranges. Being a General Manager, you can inject your energy and passion to create a business that's the heart of its community; the decision making and autonomy are yours.

You'll also be joining Greene King, the UK's largest brewery and pub company, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to progress and develop your career.

About the role

Traditionally built as a coaching inn, The Swan is set amid the quaint features of the surrounding area. Among others, Dick Turpin's cottage is located a short distance away and makes for a very interesting trip. With such a long-standing history, The Swan has retained many of its original features, but its 20 bedrooms have all the modern conveniences to make your stay a comfortable one. Open fires and oak beams create a homely atmosphere, which can be enjoyed in the bar area whilst you dine on our traditional English menu, cask ales and fine wines. The Swan also has a function room and facilities available for your wedding reception.

The General Manager will have the advantage of working in a fully invested hotel business with 20 bedrooms. Although food plays a key part in this business, local drinking trade cannot be ignored and strong community links are a must for this business to thrive.
