The Restaurant is the beating heart of THE PIG. We offer our guests a daily changing menu which is dedicated to the ingredients grown within our own kitchen garden and fresh produce provided by our local suppliers. We can guarantee each service to be different, fun, and full of atmosphere!

As Assistant Restaurant Manager you will create an exciting work atmosphere with a culture focused on family, fun and community. You will be responsible for ‘Bringing it together’ by helping to lead and drive the daily operations within the restaurant.

Our Assistant Restaurant Manager will support the Restaurant Manager by supervising the performance of the team and ensuring every guest has a positive experience with us.

As Assistant Restaurant Manager you will lead the food and beverage service in the absence of the Restaurant Manager. Therefore, good communication and people management skills are a must. You will need to be confident, yet at ease working in an attention to detail environment whilst maintaining an informal and accessible approach to all.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience within a similar role and exposure to a busy restaurant service.

After multiple lockdowns & furlough deadlines, we understand that job security is highly important. Whilst we cannot predict the future, our teams feel secure knowing that during these challenging times no one was made redundant and that everyone was included in our furlough schemes. If that is a business you would like to be part of, providing security you are looking for, then look no further.

Our Pay Promise – no one in our business will earn less than £10 Per Hour, plus service charge, so tell all your friends.
