The pub therefore needs operators who are comfortable dealing with this volume of food and managing & leading a busy kitchen team whilst ensuring high standards are met in terms of H&S and stock control.
Great customer service needs to be at the heart of everything this pub does, and the ideal candidate will be passionate about this and ensure that they and their team deliver outstanding service at every opportunity.
The Meadow House in the Tweedmouth area of Berwick upon Tweed. Berwick is the Northernmost town in the beautiful coastal county of Northumberland and sits just 2 miles to the South of the Scottish Border.
Berwick is a working town and port, and locals in the area very much look for a community pub, with a great value offering. In the Spring and Summer months the town and surrounding areas fill up with tourists and visitors, who come to explore Northumberland and the Scottish borders. The large caravan parks also bring a large population to the area who are keen to explore and sample what the area has to offer.
The pub is split into 2 key areas with a large dining food area to the left as you approach the building and a bar area with darts board, pool table and large screen TV to the right.
The pub also boasts a very large car park to the front of the property and this is a major selling point for the large volume of passing traffic looking for somewhere to rest or for passing coach trips who like to use the Meadow House as a stopping point on their journey to and from Scotland.
