Careers at The Traveller’s Friend

We are a community pub and we absolutely love our locals!!

Affectionately known by our friends as the ‘Spivs’, the pub started out as a beer shop owned by Edward Mansell and was first recorded in the 1841 census. It has had a fair few landlords since then and has recently been lovingly restored to showcase a traditional bar with an open kitchen and dining area, where we serve delicious pub food and daily changing specials.

We’re heavily invested in the local neighbourhood and always welcome those new to the area with a warm welcome and smiles. We host regular events and charity quiz evenings as well as themed food nights.

We are a busy and vibrant community-led venue looking for great people to join the team. Don’t worry if you’re a bit of a novice or this is your first role, you just need to want to get to know the locals and we can teach you the rest! So if you love providing great service, and working somewhere where you really get to feel part of the community, then give us a call today.


Due to the unprecedented global pandemic surrounding Covid-19, we have needed to take the unfortunate decision to pause all recruitment until further notice. We are absolutely determined to bounce back stronger and better than ever, so please register you’re interest here to be the first to learn about our roles when we begin recruiting once more.
