Management couple wanted for The Thorold Free House in the village of Marston, Lincolnshire.   Our friendly community has come together to buy the formerly-closed pub at the heart of our village.  We're looking for a management couple who can divide, between themselves, the duties of front of house, head chef, and management of the pub, restaurant, cafe and B&B.  We are in the process of planning / renovating and expect to re-open by the end of November 2019 (with you starting 2 - 4 weeks before opening).     We need a couple who will help shape and implement our vision to re-open our village pub and make it a warm, welcoming place.  We recognise that the key to making that happen is a friendly and brilliant managing couple.  This opportunity will attract talented couples with a history of success in the industry.  The chance to run a business like this, at no financial risk to yourselves (this is not a tenancy), should be enticing to the right people.  We hope that you will be with us for years to come.     The remuneration package is £40,000pa; a discretionary profit-linked bonus scheme; and newly renovated managers' accommodation.  The managers' accommodation will have 2 bedrooms, one ensuite bathroom, a second separate bathroom, and an open plan kitchen, lounge & diner.  The hours will be long, but there will be enormous satisfaction in making The Thorold a successful community hub and thriving business.     Please see our website at for more information on our past and our plans.   To apply, please send the following to   

  • a covering letter /email
  • a CV for each person in the management couple
  • a sample 3-course pub-style menu, with 3 options for each course
