The Cricketers is an epic pub, sitting in the heart of Gillingham and is well loved by the local community who have made it their venue of choice for all their occasions.
This is a true locals haven and we are on the lookout for a Management Company to run this pub ensuring it thrives at the heart of the community. Knowledge of the Medway Towns would help to form early and lasting relationships as strong community ties are really important. The ideal company will bring a passion for sport, with the knowledge to drive this side of the business, to make the pub the place to be on match day. A proven track record for hosting epic sporting events with a plan to engage with local teams would also be beneficial.
Flexibility is key here, providing an epic environment for all occasions, with an eye for quality, pouring that perfect pint every time. Experience in managing a vibrant local and leading a large team will really put you on the path to success. There is no call for a foodie here, but experience in delivering a delicious food menu and comfort to jump in the kitchen when needed is ideal.
Saturday’s nights at the Cricketers are famous and so we’re looking for a Management Company with a history in hosting memorable nights. Weekend events have the potential to sell out here, and it’s important the Cricketers remains a safe environment to party. It is also key to have an exciting stream of innovative ideas to hit the ground running, maximising the pub 7 days a week and meeting local demand. Atmosphere management is key here, switching the pub from sport to party night seamlessly, whilst catering for a growing food business. It does not happen by luck; it happens because of you!
