Job Description Job Description

Since 1698, when the London coffee house cemented itself as the quintessential melting pot of political, philosophical and creative debate, independent businesses have competed to serve the best cup of ‘syrup of soot and essence of old shoes’.

When we established the Gentlemen Baristas in 2014, we were determined to reinvent these age-old traditions of serving a superb cup of coffee in creative and inspiring surroundings and providing a meeting point and thinking space for London’s modern day visionaries.

Of course, ‘soot and old shoes’ will no longer satisfy the discerning palate of the 21st century coffee connoisseur; our first and primary aim has always been to showcase at its best the great wealth and variety of coffee available today.

We have a tagline. Manners are key - they’re important, they’re neglected and people do care about them. They go to the core of our identity; we are upright and correct, and strive to evoke the best of a period gone by.


We’d like to meet a well-mannered Junior General Manager to run our takeway only stall and hatch within Vinegar Yard, with a focus on quality coffee & customer service, it is a great opportunity for a Junior General Manager to develop within the company and put their own stamp on a fantastic community location.
