Assistant Manager
Do you love being busy, delivering great service and motivating your team? Great!  We are currently recruiting for a talented, guest focussed individual to join us as an Assistant Manager. 


The Jolly Postie is part of McMullen’s ever expanding Chicken & Grill concept, with the addition of our wood fired pizza oven.  We offer our guests attentive table service, freshly rotisserie roasted chickens, grilled meats and classic pub food, all complimented by McMullen’s locally brewed ales, in well-designed surroundings. However, we know that we can’t achieve any of this without great people running our pubs!


The Jolly Postie sits proudly in the grand old building on Baldock St in the centre of Royston. Originally opened in 1935 as, you guessed it, a Post Office, we’ve made our desire to preserve history very clear. As you approach the ‘Postie’ you’ll see the antique postal van parked in the entrance, 8 can dine in the back of the van comfortably, from your comfort you’ll see delicious pizza’s crisping up while absorbing the flavours of real flames dancing in the stone cased oven. Still very much a pub, feel free to join us for a drink, be it a pint of locally brewed McMullen ale, an expertly mixed cocktail or a glass of wine while enjoying the suntrap terrace, our amazing team await!  We have a reputation for great quality food and exceptional service and therefore finding the right person to join our friendly and vibrant team is essential.
