Assistant Restaurant & Bar Manager


Description

Hotel                   DoubleTree by Hilton Lincoln – the bar and restaurant team  
Contract Type   40hrs per week
Reporting to      Bar and Restaurant Manager

Perched on Brayford Marina in the heart of Lincoln, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Lincoln serves as a perfect backdrop for any type of gathering including conferences, business meetings, weddings, receptions, leisure stays, and celebrations. This downtown hotel features 600 sq. metres of fully air-conditioned flexible event space, 160 bedrooms, a lounge bar, a top-floor cocktail bar, and Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill Restaurant. The hotel's full catering and banquet service includes delicious offerings which can be tailored to cater for any type of event.  The hotel boasts a waterfront setting and city views and serves as a stylish backdrop for every occasion. Our hotel is relaxing, yet professional with a contemporary style, as well as its proximity to local Lincoln attractions and shopping. 

Whilst visiting the hotel guests can stroll along the cobbled streets of the historic Bailgate area or visit the majestic Lincoln Cathedral and discover the rich history of the Lincoln Castle. And at the end of their busy day, they'll relax in our stylish Electric Bar to enjoy a handmade cocktail or glass of bubbly, and finish off in our Marco Pierre White restaurant.
