Lovely, lively Couple wanted for busy seaside pub!


We are looking for an enthusiastic, capable couple to join our small busy team at our lovely seaside pub from the middle of May. 

You must be prepared to work in all areas of the bar and kitchen, an experience and love of good food and cooking would be an advantage. The primary role would be to work as a member of the team, carrying out all aspects of kitchen and bar work and at all times ensure the cohesive and effective working nature of the team. 

The pub is a lively, happy, very busy place to work with a young energetic team, there is a lot of laughter and talk, however this never gets in the way of  professional hard work in which every member takes responsibility for a job well done.  We as owners and members of that team have very high standards and expectations. 

Average hours across the year would be around 40-45.  The hours are across a 5 day working week with joint and consecutive days off. 

We work to the statutory holidays which are 28 days across the year 

We are a small family run business, run by both of us for the last 19 years. During this time we have gained an excellent reputation, we are frequently in newspapers, have been on 3 TV programmes, we strive to maintain excellent standards across our food, drink and service.   We use the best local produce – cheese, bread, fish, meat etc…- animal welfare is paramount. We have many returning customers who expects the same high standard as on previous visits. 

We also run a successful micro brewery producing over twenty different ales. Our brewery is adjacent to the pub, has been running for nine years and keeps us self-sufficient in first quality cask conditioned ale. 

Though the resident community is small, we have so many frequent returning visitors that there is a wider sense of community.  This helps to make the Ship a very special place with a unique atmosphere. During the year we have many music afternoons and evenings which can end with a lot of dancing!  In the winter months we have a film night, the pub miraculously turns itself into a small cinema, free popcorn included!  The last weekend in July we have a small music festival outside the pub with several bands booked and hopefully lots of sunshine!  The 4th Monday of every month we have a folk group who come and the book group uses the pub through the winter.  
By train we are 30 minutes from Newcastle, 3 hours from London and just over an hour up to Edinburgh.  Alnwick has several large supermarkets, clothes shops and food places – it also has Alnwick castle that was used in the filming of Harry Potter. 

The local area has beautiful sandy beaches, hills and further inland some moorland – lots of castles and lovely places to explore. 

You must be a car owner and ideally both of you drivers. 

You must be fluent English speakers 

Above minimum wages 

If you think you sound like the enthusiastic and capable people we are after, please send CVs and photos!
