Saxon Penny, Darwin Park,
Lichfield, WS13 6RX
The Saxon Penny is opening its doors in November 2013 as part of our Two for One pub restaurant format. This format is proving to be increasingly popular with our customers. It is a high volume, food-led site with an emphasis on family friendly values. With an extensive menu and a large specials board it caters for a wide variety of tastes and preferences. The provision of full table service and a Two for One price offer on all main meals and specials means we truly represent a real value for money offering.
The Saxon Penny will operate a modern open plan layout which enough room to cater for 180 diners internally and 80 externally in the impressive beer garden. The pub provides live in accommodation which consists of three bedrooms and a kitchen diner. The pub is located within an affluent residential housing area on the edge of the tourist hotspot of Lichfield with a community hall and Waitrose supermarket in walking distance
The Ideal Candidate
With a passion for the pub trade and a commitment to providing a first class customer service, you'll enjoy a hands-on role, working at the sharp end of the business, covering every area of operational activity, even including the kitchen. A confident communicator, with proven supervisory and/or management experience gained in a pub, retail or catering environment, we'll expect you to know how to get the best out of colleagues and customers, as well as being willing to go that extra mile.
