This large-scale business is looking for a highly experienced, energetic leader with a diverse hospitality background to help create a home from home for all our guests.
The local community who are scattered across the edge of Dartmoor really view this as their community central hub and so getting involved to support and entertain them needs to be a driving passion.
Being physically & socially active would be ideal as this area offers plenty of outdoor pursuits which you should thrive upon; from walking to horse riding and cycling to four legged friends. Your guests will undoubtedly be looking for inspiration for their next adventure so your local knowledge and understanding their needs is paramount.
The seven en-suite lettings are booked for a variety of reasons; cycling groups, families passing through to Cornwall and couples taking a relaxing country break to mention but a few. The rooms themselves have flexible set ups so you need to be creative in your ability to maximise the occupancy and deliver with exceptional standards.
Everything about this property is huge and so you need to be great at organising and implementing systems through aspirational leadership. Seasonal trading patterns means recruitment of awesome team members needs to be a strength to help you deliver fantastic results.
The Burrator Inn sits on the south west edge of Dartmoor and gets its name from the Burrator Reservoir which is just a mile away. The road that runs to the front of the property is the main route in and out of the moor from Plymouth and passes through the famous village of Princetown with its’ historic jail and brewery.
There are plenty of reasons to draw people out from the suburbs to this area and the pub has ample space to accommodate them. So whether it’s for a warming hot chocolate at the end of a cold walk, a bite to eat or some live music you should always expect a relaxed, friendly welcome.

The Development / What would this pub look like if it was epic
We are planning to invest a substantial £450k in the property to give it great kerb appeal, a complete interior makeover enhancing many existing features and provide those finishing, thoughtful touches to make it user friendly for you, your team and significantly, our customers. The guest rooms will get an injection of colour and new furniture whilst the well-appointed garden will have an additional patio area created.
We will provide a strong platform to make this business stand out as a true legend in the area – the go to place for outdoor people.
