The opportunity

We’re looking for an experienced operator with a contagious personality enthusiastic about quality food and drinks. You’ll be an operator with the vision to think creatively to take the Chetwode Arms to the next level, as this beautiful pub’s potential is boundless. You’ll need strong leadership skills to drive sales, superb service, and strong financial acumen.

We’re looking for a Management Partner with excellent hosting skills. You’ll be the big personality in the centre of a busy village local. The ideal operator will nurture this destination pub, where guests will look forward to catching up on all the local gossip. You’ll love running a kitchen and be happy to jump in when needed.

Guests will know you for serving a tasty pint of beer. You’ll be enthusiastic about coaching your team and able to attract like-minded people to be part of your team. You’ll love to plan for all the big occasions getting into the detail.

Understanding the local life is essential, as you will be at the heart of village life and be proud of the tight-knit community you serve.

The pub and location

We’ll develop the Chetwode Arms this year to a prominent level. The project will enhance this already gorgeous pub, utilizing the outside areas for a great all year space. The person that takes the reins at this pub will be the final piece of the puzzle.

The Chetwode Arms sits in the idyllic village of Lower Whitley. It’s a characterful destination country pub with a fantastic reputation for food, drink, and service. You’ll enjoy a pub with bags of charm where guests celebrate and make memories.

The Chetwode has disparate trading areas with an abundance of character and charm with cosy corners, open fires and space for private dining or catching up with the locals. The pub is famous for excellent cask ale, delicious homemade food, and fantastic kitchen support for serving high volume food during the summer months.

You’ll seize upon the potential of the extensive garden terrace, bowling green and a smallholding. During the summer months, guests will enjoy a chilled tipple or two or gather for a special occasion. The Chetwode Arms is the hub of the village and is a fantastic stop-off spot for dog walkers and ramblers, attracting many visitors during the summer months, with ample parking.
