Website Lake View Garden Bar

The Lake View Garden Bar is part of Hargreaves Enterprises, a leading hospitality company in the Lake District with a portfolio of 5 destination brands. Ranging from luxury boutique accommodation to stunning cocktails and outstanding views. If our well known name isn’t what you are looking for on your CV then maybe our commitment to nurturing our staff and them winning awards is of more interest to you. This is all possible because you have access to in-house training, industry level courses or funded university learning. Finally if that doesn’t convince you to work for us then may our innovative approach will. We use ground source and air source to create green heating and cooling all in the name of cutting our carbon footprint and making more sustainable choices. Our work goes further than this though as we work with key suppliers to create more sustainable drinks.
