Jobs joy as revamped Cheshire Cheese opens

Around 20 jobs will be created as an historic Buxton pub enjoys a new lease of life. 

The Cheshire Cheese will reopen its doors on 17 October following a major makeover from Titanic Brewery – a company with a track record of refurbishing and reviving pubs in nearby North Staffordshire. 

And the High Street venue is on the look out for senior kitchen staff, with the roles of Head Chef and assistant chef up for grabs. 

The Cheshire Cheese is the eighth pub to be opened by award winning real ale brewery Titanic and the seventh in the past seven years. 

The Burslem based brewer has built an enviable reputation for the development of thriving community pubs and have experienced strong growth in the face of a global recession. 

“The Cheshire Cheese is our first Derbyshire venture and we are excited to be investing in Buxton,” said Titanic Brewery Director, Dave Bott. 

“This is a pub full of character and we have made sympathetic changes to make it as welcoming as possible to customers. 

“We have a strong community ethos and pride ourselves on creating welcoming pubs which sell good local produce and are used by customers of all ages.”

“We are looking for a kitchen team to serve great quality local produce. Where ever we have opened a pub we have endeavoured to use local suppliers for food such as bread, meat and cheese and we will work to help Buxton suppliers in the same way.” 

The Cheshire Cheese will be run by Titanic in an agreement with Everards Brewery who announced the purchase of the premises in June, 2013.
