General Manager, Old Bank of England, London

The Old Bank of England is an iconic pub located in the heart of London on Fleet Street. Once a subsidiary branch of the Bank of England, this beautiful pub has quite an astounding interior. It's a Grade I listed Italianate building and the splendid spacious bar has three gleaming chandeliers hanging from an exquisitely plastered ceiling that soars above an unusually tall island bar counter crowned with a clock. However, a new lease of life is coming to the Old Bank of England from March this year, with a large investment into restoring and revitalizing the space as well as adding a few exciting new features – as is McMullen’s style!

The Old Bank of England is part of our London High Street concept and will therefore offers a classic British menu, alongside its amazing signature pies. Serving approximately 700 main meals a week there is plenty of opportunity to grow this business. The Old Bank of England benefits from high volume of passing trade as well as being surrounded an abundance of city workers.

The ideal General Manager candidate must have 3+ years of experience running a site with high-volume food from a branded menu. London experience is preferable, however previous experience working within a high-volume tourist market is advantageous.
