The ideal operator will be passionate about quality beers and love hosting. You’ll know how to enrapture tourists, theatre goers and students alike by satiating their different needs. The Thomas Beckett pub needs an operator with excellent attention to detail. Never compromising on your high-end standards, you’ll train, develop, and focus your team. In a crowded market, you’ll always stand out!


You’ll have an excellent opportunity to grow this established city-centre pub and make it the locality’s go-to venue. The pub is looking for someone to be front and centre and be the talk of the town.


Food is a big part of the offer. Although not complex, it requires absolute attention to detail. You’ll have a proven track record of serving delicious food with the ability to motivate and manage an efficient kitchen team. You’ll blend a premium dining experience with a fast cover turnover. Attracting people from all over Kent, your focus will be on delivering a five-star guest experience every time.


We’re looking for a talented and creative operator adept at bringing their business to life on social media. You’ll glean excellent social media reviews because this isn’t just a job; you’ll have the passion and desire to be the best-in-class locally. 


The pub and location


You’ll be taking the reins of a gorgeous 18th Century pub in the middle of Canterbury City Centre, with good rail and road links to London and the Coast. 


The Thomas Becket pub oozes charm and character. Carefully restored and renovated in 2021, the pub compromises 68 covers in a ground-floor bar/restaurant. Guests also enjoy the quaint courtyard with eight covers. A brand new kitchen will enable you to maximise food opportunities, and the stunning bar will get guests talking.


The Thomas Becket pub boasts a cracking range of beers, liveners, and pick-me-ups. Guests enjoy soaking in the quirky art and curiosities with plenty of cosy and lively spots to relax and socialise.


The living accommodation comprises two good-sized double rooms, a living room, and a spacious kitchen.
