Are you passionate about hospitality

and committed to providing your customers with a first-class experience every time?

Little Gems Country Dining started in October 2006 and we’re a small, intimate company with five pubs. It’s our principle to use this intimacy to support our pub managers, so that they can run the pubs with their own style and identity. Managers make decisions about menus, staff and local marketing and the office do the support functions for them (so our managers get to do all the fun bits!). We pride ourselves on doing the simple things really well and keeping our focus on the staff and customers. In our kitchens, our Head Chefs concentrate on providing home cooked menus with daily changing specials. Provenance, sustainability and sourcing British food is important to us, and we keep our dishes simple and not over-presented.


  • Saving and Earning money – competitive salary plus tips, food discounts, recruitment incentive schemes
  • While you work – free food on 6 hour+ shifts, fun and professional work environment, support to achieve personal goals
  • Your Career – training and development, compliance training, dedicated e-learning courses, flexibility within the group, Little Gem days/gatherings


We are always looking for natural born leaders and entrepreneurs to join our pub group….

Do you love good food and drink? Does the thought of cooking with seasonal ingredients and working hand-in-hand with local suppliers whet your creative appetite?  Do you have an awareness of and care for how customers and staff feel? Do you have a natural tendency to do something as well as it can possibly be done? Optimistic warmth – a sense that their glass is always half full?

Depending on your skills, experience and desire, there are various managerial roles you can apply for. At whichever level you start, join us on your career journey – we will get you fully involved in letting you see a 360 degree view of one of our sites.
