The Red Lion is a place where you can stop for a while, eat delicious food and drink in the atmosphere.
Set in the beautiful village of Granchester, our picture perfect, thatch roofed pub is a 2 minute walk from The Granchester Meadows and a lovely 20 minute stroll along The Cam from Cambridge.
Muddy boots and dogs are both welcome so bring the mutt and settle in next to the fire. On sunny days grab a deck chair in our lovely garden where we have a BBQ shack, and table service on the terrace. Families are always welcome too as kids can enjoy our play park at the back of the garden.
Our menu changes when the leaves fall, the temperature drops, the flowers come out and the sun shines. So while we always have pub favourites (with a bit of extra TLC on top), there’s always something new to work on too. What? Well, that’s up to you. You’ll develop and design the menu, train the team and take charge of everything. The menu – and the job – really are what you want to make of them.
So we’re just as interested in who you are as we are in your cooking. Of course, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of stock control, rotation and ordering, and how ingredients change with the seasons. But it’s more than that. What are you like to work with? How do you rally a team? Are you calm when things don’t go to plan? What makes you laugh? We want to get to know you and your way of doing things. And find out how you can bring them to Red Lion (CB3 9NF)

Who are we, anyway?
We’re Metropolitan Pub Company (or Metro Pub Co for short). We’re part of Greene King, but they leave us to it. We’re big believers in local pubs being just that, with their own character and charm. We’ve got over 60 pubs in and around London: neighbourhood locals, city pubs and foodie ones. They’re all different – run by their managers, not a boardroom – and we like it that way.
Here’s what you need:
- Fluent spoken English
- The right to live and work in the UK.
