Careers at The Oarsman

About us:

We are a small independent group of pubs located in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire with a proven track record in successfully running award-winning pubs for over 12 years.

Currently we have the Grouse and Ale in Lane End, a busy village centre pub; the Yew Tree in Frieth which is a pretty country pub which we opened 2 years ago to great reviews and ongoing success.

The key to our success is our people – and that’s where you come in!
