Through our passion for excellence and unyielding innovation, our aim is for Mitchells and Butlers pubs and restaurants to be the venue of choice for a relaxed, memorable meal or drink, whatever the occasion.
We’ve always been pioneers in the pub industry and grew gradually until we were running 7,000 pubs in the 1980s. The landmark Beer Orders in 1989 changed everything, but since then we’ve evolved rapidly with innovative brands like All Bar One, Browns and O’Neill’s responding to the mood of the times. Back in the 1980s beer was by far our biggest seller, but nowadays, 50% of our sales come from food. In fact, we now serve around 135 million meals a year, as well as some 435 million drinks.
From historic London pubs to modern city centre brasseries, from Liverpool’s grand Philharmonic Dining Rooms to the Horseshoe Bar in Glasgow, we have a rich array of restaurants and pubs that reflect all the diversity and antiquity you’d expect from a company well into its second century. You can rest assured we’ll be doing everything we can to make the next 100 years every bit as interesting.
We’re proud of our heritage, employees, and service excellence. We believe that happy, fulfilled employees make for happy, satisfied guests. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing your dream job with training and career development that is second to none. Whether you’re searching for a local job or looking to re-locate, we are one of the largest employers in the country, with over 44,000 people working with us all over the UK.
It’s the people and culture that make working life fulfilling and our teams are vibrant, hard-working and passionate. We believe that’s the secret to a happy career.
We are striving to attract, advance and retain the best talent. Everything we do as a business is built on the passion and professionalism of our people.
We strive to competitively reward our staff and we’re proud that so many choose to stay with us. For example, members of our higher management team have been with us for an average of twenty years, and our restaurant and pub managers for an average of eight.
We encourage constant feedback from our employees which allows us to identify opportunities for positive change. Our aim is to support our team and encourage them to flourish within each role and enjoy a long career within our company.
We are innovative trainers and offer our employees opportunities to expand their skillset with our impressive Mitchells and Butlers on-the-job training and qualifications such as Kitchen NVQ Apprenticeships, Quality Educational Spirit and Soft Drinks Training. We also offer a Post Graduate certificate for managers (CMS), Post Graduate Diplomas, apprenticeships and MBA/MSc programmes for higher levels of management.
