The George at Alstonefield
Interested in starting a career within the hospitality industry and learning the tricks of the trade? The George has a great opportunity for one lucky apprentice to join their team and undertake this apprenticeship allowing you to start your career now

The George at Alstonefield - Employer

The George is an unspoilt, family run pub in the Peak District village of Alstonefield, above Dovedale and a stones throw from Mill Dale within the Peak National Park. As you walk into neat rooms of old beams, gleaming quarry tiles, a crackling log fire, you will know you’re in safe hands. It’s an unhurried place, where everyone knows everyone else (or soon will). Summer sees ramblers cram the benches out front, along with the village cricket team and time passes slowly. Come winter, a cosy space for muddy boots and big tables awaits in our coach house. The dining room and snug have been restored to their original simplicity with lime plastered walls and farmhouse furniture. Candlelight and fresh flowers add a touch of elegance. We hope that you can join us soon to enjoy our well-kept real ales, carefully selected wine list and real pub food, recognised in The Good Food Guide since 2009; Michelin and Sawdays. For the right candidate there is plenty of opportunity for progression within the pub and within its other parts including a separate function room.
