Full job description

Group General Manager
Front of House – The Barbary
Contract: Permanent
Salary: Up to £65,000/annum**
The Barbary & The Barbary Next Door seek an experienced and highly skilled General Manager to lead the teams at Neal’s Yard. This is a unique opportunity to be at the helm of one of London’s iconic establishments.
The Barbary & The Barbary Next Door are tucked away in the iconic Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden. The restaurants are bursting with personality, as they take their inspiration from the rich history of the Barbary Coast, Moroccan courtyards and backstreet Andalusian bars. They tell a story of trade, travel and culture – people voyaging along the coast, collecting and sharing recipes and ideas. This culinary heritage is about seasonality and availability; and most of all, bringing people together.
The Barbary & The Barbary Next Door stand as individual restaurants, each with a different offering and unique focus. The Barbary is a high-energy restaurant, buzzing with lively guests, great music and the theatrics from our open kitchen. The Barbary Next Door operates as a café by day, turning into a relaxed neighbourhood restaurant and wine bar at night. This is an exciting opportunity for someone looking to step up into a multi-faceted role.
You’ll be*

  • Dynamic and inspirational: Be an active leader, fostering a respectful, collaborative and inclusive culture, engaging the team to meet high standards across both venues.

  • Diligent and meticulous: Understand the intricacies of maintaining a high-end establishment, ensuring compliance with food safety, health & safety, and licensing.
  • Accomplished: Have a proven track record in the hospitality sector with a deep understanding of the evolving trends and competitive landscape of the London dining scene.
