When you think of Stonehouse you may think of the delicious all-you-can-eat breakfasts, the stone-baked pizzas or even the freshly carved roasts, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to work at a Stonehouse restaurant?

At Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery we’re a friendly bunch priding ourselves on giving the warmest of welcomes, creating an environment that feels like a ‘home from home;’ for both our guests and our team!

Whether it’s serving up 100% fresh stoned baked pizzas, pouring a pint for your favourite regular or creating memorable moments for guests, being a part of the Stonehouse family means being at the heart of the community.

And you don’t have to take our word for it!

In this blog, we get to know members of our Stonehouse teams. Kitchen Team Leader Donald, Team Member Lisa and General Manager Lizzie, who collectively have 26 years’ of M&B experience between them. They will all be sharing with you their experiences of being a part of the Stonehouse family.

What is the best thing about being a part of the Stonehouse family? My work family and meeting different people on a daily basis.

What is your favourite Stonehouse dish? The crispy poppin’ chicken wrap is delicious!

Who is your dream dinner guest? Brad Pitt!

What makes M&B different from other employers? I always feel rewarded for my hard work. For example, I was recently rewarded for getting the highest Trip Advisor Score in the business! And of course, the benefits, especially the 33% discount.

Did you know that as a team member you can get 33% off when you dine in any of our 13 brands! And it just got better because now your friends and family can also enjoy 20% when they dine, and you don’t have to be there.

What is the best thing about being a part of the Stonehouse Family: Working with real people, with real personality, from various walks of life and experience, whilst making friends for life!

Who is your dream dinner guest: David Attenborough- not sure he's a carvery man but he is extremely interesting and me and the team could listen to him talk all day long!
