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.

One of the most beautiful pubs in the Fuller’s estate and steeped in history, the Alice Lisle is looking for a new General Manager to lead the pub into its next chapter of success. Nestled just in the New Forest on the Dorset – Hampshire border. Only 2 miles from the vibrant market town of Ringwood and 20 minutes from Poole and Bournemouth, the Alice Lisle is a rural haven that boasts a truly gorgeous location with food to match. Located on the banks of Rockford Lake, the views from the pub are stunning and its location makes it a mecca for walkers, cyclists and families who are out to enjoy all the surrounding area has to offer. The pub offers a special ‘Ramblers Lunch’ menu and provides hiking maps of the local area.

With a fresh, premium food offer, the Alice Lisle is renowned locally for great food and fantastic service. The menu here is all about the best local produce, exciting twists on classic dishes and an offer that will satisfy the varied customer demographic. The pub is beautifully decorated inside with a cosy bar area to the right and a more formal yet welcoming dining room and conservatory. The outside area is where the Alice Lisle really stands out. With a large garden to the rear complete with lake views and over 300 covers, this really is the ideal spot to spend warm summer days in the New Forest.

With a projected turnover of over £1.25 million next year based on a 70/30 split in favour of food the next General Manager of the Alice Lisle needs to be a real food volume operational expert. Food sales can be as much as £28-£30k per week in the height of the summer with overall sales reaching over £40k. But the Alice Lisle is no sleeping angel in winter where total sales average around £17-£19k and an ability to engage with a discerning local community whilst providing other reasons to visit are essential. Maximising revenue on a Sunday is critical to the winter success of the business, table turning our 120 internal covers to deliver a great Sunday is pivotal for really setting up the week. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a history of working closely with their Head chef in previous roles to deliver food growth success, and be able to show a proven track record in delivering excellent customer satisfaction results and financial success.

The role is advertised as a live in opportunity with a two bedroom flat available, however there may be scope for live out for the right candidate.
