Brunning & Price pubs are very busy places to work, however the clientele are usually lovely which makes it enjoyable to work with them.
The locations themselves are well presented and are kept to a very high standard.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Unsociable hours

Worked there for a good few years from opening. Started off on pot wash and worked my way up to commis chef. The first head chef we had was excellent and supportive but things went downhill when he left. Most of the staff are kids, and young assistant managers make for bad control of the place. Management are bullies, terrible work/life balance, and long hours led to mental health issues. Brunning and price is owned by a larger group so once you've worked there for a while you realise that it's like every other chain place.
Pros
Pay alright.
Cons
Long hours, bad management.

All recipes are done to specifications. The food is simple but from when I started with the company it has gone down hill. The money isn't great for the hours that you do on a 48 hour contract. They pretty much get two months free out of you.
Pros
Free staff food and tips
Cons
Long hours. Food going down hill.

Was alright at the beginning but due to the business getting more busy managers cared less and less and anything from head office was just poorly written and organised.

I started working here earlier on in the year, and absolutely loved it. I was absolutely gutted to have left but felt that the management skills were very much lacking. The other co workers were absolute stars and I have made excellent friendships with them. I would love to go back to the pub but there are too many things stopping me currently.

Never have I worked in such a disgraceful job EVER. Tips stolen, No breaks allowed (had to eat in the Kitchen), Chefs were complete lunatics, coming to work with Coke on there noses. The work load was off the scale. The chefs wound up delivery drivers so much they would leave the delivery's away from the door let alone come in. The list goes on..Avoid..
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

A vibrant array of different characters, each can be paired to the different ale or gin that you'll learn vast knowledge on. The team will become your second family and you'll be the punters number 1 confident. Although it can be slow at times there's never a dull moment.

Very fast paced jobs with a main focus on long shifts, typical of the industry. Decent payers with weekly pay packets just over minimum wage- although only just. Job heavily reliant on tips so pretty much 50-60 hours a week plus. Can take it’s toll after a while...
Pros
Staff food and tips
Cons
Long hours- no breaks

Pros
free lunches under £10
Cons
is remote

Enjoyed working at Brunning and price unfortunately had to leave due to having a career to pursue but took a job working front of house whilst waiting to start my new role.
Advancement was there for employees if they wanted it. Work was fun and management easy to get on with

Really flexible work schedule as a kitchen porter, but you can easily get sucked into extra work due to people needing shift cover etc. Good team, social bunch. Tips are not managed as well - they were kept in pockets in a box and someone kept stealing peoples tips.
Pros
Flexible workload and decrease/increase hours optional
Cons
Non sociable hours

Pros
Free drink after shift and lunch if a long shift
Cons
Overstaffed sometimes
