Robinsons is one of the oldest and most respected names in British brewing history with a range of unique and award-winning pubs, inns and hotels across the North West, Yorkshire, North Wales and Cumbria.

We think our pubs are great, but it’s our team who really make us different. Delivering great hospitality every day so our guests love us, return and recommend. This will only happen when we have the right people.

We’re looking for outgoing, friendly people who can provide great hospitality – we can train the rest! Previous experience is always helpful but not essential, as long as you enjoy looking after people and working as part of a team.

We are very flexible and try to work around people’s commitments, whether you’re looking for part-time or full-time hours, we’re sure you’ll enjoy working for us – and in return we have plenty to offer you…
