About the employer

We have had this pub for around five years now however the owner worked here previously for two years. We cater for everyone and anyone and with a very unique customer base no two days are the same! We do basic pub food alongside a more expansive menu and our themed and steak nights have really taken off. We also own a second pub called The Blue Bell in East Drayton and are hoping to expand both businesses with your help.
