A great new addition to the Fuller's managed estate, The Bridge Inn, Shoreham is a beautiful pub with bedrooms overlooking the River Adur. Equipped with a large suntrap terrace and cosy interior, the pub offers the perfect escape on the South Coast whatever the weather. The Bridge will shortly be undergoing a major refurbishment.

Could you write the next chapter of our success story?

As our General Manager, you’ll be the driving force behind the success of the pub.

Ultimately, the smiles on faces, the return visits and the positive reviews are all down to you - making this one of the most rewarding jobs in the hospitality business.

  • Run a great pub, backed by the famous Fuller’s brewery
  • Enjoy the freedom to make the pub your own
  • Adopt a fantastic, friendly team
  • Benefit from a competitive salary and great discounts including 20% in all Fuller's pubs and heavily discounted stays in our hotels.
  • Benefit from industry leading training and development.
  • We will reward you every time you introduce a friend to the Fuller’s family who successfully passes their probation.

For any General Manager, Fuller’s is a special company to work for. You’ll get lots of help and support from Head Office when you need it, but also plenty of encouragement to put your own spin on the pub.

You can take plenty of pride in the role too, knowing that Fuller’s ales, food and service has a reputation as some of the very best in the business.

You’ll need to be commercially minded, making the right decisions to keep customers pouring through the doors. Importantly though, you’ll be a people-person too - mindful that to many, you’re still a good old-fashioned ‘Landlord’.

And of course, you’ll have a team to look after. So we’re looking for somebody with true leadership qualities – able to keep both the customers and the team smiling.

  • You’ll be great at leading a team
  • You should be highly motivated and commercially focused
  • You’ll need to be a great communicator
  • You should have previous management experience

Please understand that we will need proof of your right to work in the UK.


An exciting new addition to the Fuller’s managed estate, the Bridge Inn in the beautiful Shoreham by Sea needs a General Manager to relaunch the business.

Currently a very popular Fuller’s tenanted business, the Bridge Inn occupies a superb location on the River Adur and is just a stone’s throw from the coast. Its reputation locally and online is strong and the pub has a loyal core of regular customers. Following its transfer to the managed estate, the site will receive a significant investment, transforming the 4 current B&B rooms to 6 ‘Beautiful Bedrooms’. In addition, the garden which already boasts great river views will be turned in to a stunning haven where customers will be able to enjoy a superb menu of pub classics and quality drinks. The pub will be completely refurbished internally.

This is a seasonal business where trade can double during the summer months. The new General Manager of the Bridge Inn will have experience in running a seasonal operation and will have a great eye for detail. As this business will close for refurbishment and then reopen, you will be a good marketeer who will reach out to the local community to build on existing relationships with residents and businesses and look to form new ones. Experience in a business with rooms would be beneficial but not essential.

This is a live out role and a great opportunity to be part of an exciting new addition to the estate with a significant investment.
