General Manager
Marston’s is one of the UK’s largest and most beloved pub chains and today, we operate more than 1,300 pubs, bars and hotels. 

Now, we’re on the lookout for a great General Manager to take charge at the Old Colonial and lead the team to success!

Have you got what it takes?
It’s true, being a Pub Manager is demanding but the people make it much more than just a job. Brimming with energy and ideas, you’ll add touches of your personality to your pub and think of new ways to delight and excite your customers. You’ll thrive off growing your business and have a ‘lead from the front’ mentality and passion for nurturing your team.

As a General Manager you’ll:

  • Care about finding, growing and engaging your team.
  • Be accountable for running all aspects of your pub.
  • Be passionate about doing the right thing for your staff and your customers.
  • Dream big and think differently about new ways to increase sales and growth.
  • Celebrate and create a buzz by sharing enjoyable experiences.

Are we right for you?
From cosy locals to pub-restaurants, our destination businesses serve up an award-winning selection of pub classics and innovative new dishes. What’s more, our impressive drinks portfolio combines well-known brands, like Estrella and Hobgoblin, with outstanding craft ales and beers. Add a dash of our unique Marston’s atmosphere and we have the ingredients to make every visit a fantastic experience for our customers. The same goes for our people and as one of our General Managers you’ll find a premium blend of challenge, security and career progression. And whenever you need support or guidance advice from your area manager, you’ll find their door is always open.

About the pub

The Old Colonial is a thriving pub with hotel rooms located on a highly popular seafront in Weston Super Mare.

Having been very successfully ran, the site has a full senior team in place and strong local following, as well as tourist trade. Currently split 40% wet/40% dry and 20% on rooms, the pub offers a classic pub menu and is achieving sales of around £18k weekly with sales peaking in the height of summer.

The pub offers so much for the locals, from live music and events to a  large fronted patio area. There is scope to really grow this business for a General Manager who is sales driven and keen to build local relationships, maintaining the reputation of this fantastic site.

Two bedroom accommodation is available with this opportunity.
