We are looking for someone who has experience running a busy, destination food pub to take The Three Bishops to the next level.
This is a pub with a fair amount of complexity owing to the fact that it is an amazing pub with a knockout garden, and has five bedrooms – so there are many different facets to the business for the right person to get their teeth into.
Experience of working in a very seasonal business is vital, being able to demonstrate the ability to flex the team up and down depending on numerous factors including weather, season and events.
Fantastic food and knock out service are the cornerstone of this business. This can only be achieved with a real team effort so infectious enthusiasm and inspirational leadership will be second nature to you.
Experience of working on the Isle of Wight is advantageous but not essential, as you will be at the heart of island and village life and be proud of the tight knit community you serve.
Delivering a Rhythm of the Week beyond the norm is also important, as attracting customers throughout the year is key to the long-term success of the business.
The Three Bishops is located right in the heart of the small village of Brighstone in the South West of the Isle of Wight, around half a mile from the Heritage Coast which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is incredibly popular with walkers, hikers and fossil hunters.
The pub had significant development in Spring 2020 with five letting rooms added, two of which have their own private garden, along with a breakfast room. The bar and dining areas also benefited from investment, with the customer facing area receiving a new lease of life.
The pub has a large car park to the rear, together with a beautiful, south facing garden with children’s play area.
