First Ever Female-Led Pub Opens In UK

A London-based pub has become the first to be led by an all-female team. Their aim is to provide a safe training environment for women in hospitality, as well as a secure space for people to drink.

Women are currently being encouraged to apply for the vacant roles of chef, general manager, bar-back and mixologist at the Flowerhouse pub. The drinking hotspot in Marylebone is set to shake up a historically male-dominated industry.

It was originally the brainchild of former chief creative officer Jo Jackson, before the team behind a bar in Shoreditch helped bring it to life.

Job vacancies are currently open to anyone, however women of all backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply.

Apprenticeships and training schemes will be available, as well as flexible working hours with the busy mum in mind.

The female-led team will help to ensure that women in hospitality feel safe, supported and empowered.

Every fine detail - even down to the interior design - has been created and led by women.

"Through renovating @flowerhousepub on Chiltern St we wanted to support as many female entrepreneurs as possible [sic]", they posted on their official Instagram account.

This has been welcome news to women throughout the UK, after months of concerns surrounding their safety.

Back in 2018, a survey conducted by trade union Unite found that 89 per cent of hospitality workers had experienced sexual harassment at least once in the workplace.

While measures have been put in place to ensure that women in hospitality feel safer while working or having a drink, Flowerhouse is the first pub to actually create an environment supported and endorsed by other women.

The pub promises to uphold certain traditions, despite this break away from the norm. Craft beers will still be sold, with the aim of transforming into a very British gastropub after the new year.
