We have an excellent General Manager opportunity available at the Grain and Hop Store, Cambridge.



The Business

This is an exciting opportunity to run one of Greene Kings flagship pubs. It is the first of a new concept within Locals called Beer & Meat, and due to its success there will be more opening up soon.

The Grain & Hop Store is unique as it sells Pilsner Urquell direct out of copper tanks, with a whole range of Craft and Cask Beers. There are two bars, with one of the best sport viewings in the whole of Cambridge, with additional function room facilities.

The business caters for all, and is now in the heart of the Cambridge circuit.

Even though it has a mainly Wet Led business, it also does 30% Food, with the menu ranging from Burgers to Ribs to Platters. Therefore the ideal candidate needs to be able to adapt to both situations.


Average weekly turnover: £30,000
Split Wet/Food: 70/30
