The pub’s advert for the new chef says ‘SNOWFLAKES’ needn’t apply, the landlord admits, as the lockdown bar is plagued by ‘flaky people who don’t want to work and constantly want some time off’.
- A Cheshire pub advertises a chef but said ‘Snowflakes shouldn’t advertise
- Landlord Christopher Darnbrough said he’s after someone who “works hard”.
- He says he struggles with “scaly” people who constantly want time off
A Cheshire pub is looking for a new chef but has said “no snowflakes” should apply for the role.
The Queen Anne in Warrington promoted the new role by putting up a plaque outside that read: “Boss wanted. Please ask inside for details. Please no snowflakes!’
The pub’s manager has bemoaned previous “wobbly” employees who “constantly” wanted a break.
The pub, which bills itself as “a small family-run Freihaus” that prides itself on “serving good beer and great food”, also shared a photo of the board online.
The Facebook post reads: “We are still looking for chefs to join our busy kitchen team.
“So if you want to be involved in serving and preparing the best home cooked food Golborne (Sic) has to offer, be busy and don’t be a snowflake. Come by and have a chat or send us a message.”
The Queen Anne Pub in Warrington is looking for a chef but has told The Snowflakes not to apply
Landlord Christopher Darnbrough said he’s just after someone who “works hard” and is “slightly eccentric”.
Several people took to Facebook to comment on the pub’s decision to require “no snowflakes” to apply to the chef’s position
The ad has divided opinion, with some users strongly agreeing with the sentiment of the message, while others hoped they wouldn’t find anyone for the role.
One user enthusiastically commented: “Snowflakes are taking over the world”. Another seemed more annoyed at the sign, grumbling: “I really hope you don’t find anyone.”
Another asked: “Are you still looking because they’re all snowflakes?”. While another user asked for clarification, saying “Please define your snowflake.”
One user suggested that her boyfriend should apply for the role as they were a good match, they tagged their pal and said “You’re not a snowflake!”
Martial arts and motorcycle-loving landlord Christopher Darnbrough has shared the job ad more than once, saying he’s just looking for someone who’s “hardworking” and “slightly eccentric.”
The Queen Anne offers home cooked meals using fresh local ingredients
He said: “Since lockdown we’ve had a lot of scaly people who don’t want to work and are just on and off and constantly wanting some downtime.
He added, “Most people saw the funny side.”
The family-run pub says it only uses “fresh, locally sourced ingredients” in its food and that everything is homemade on-site.
They offer a range of traditional British dishes “with a modern twist”, from their “famous steak pie” to a range of curries.
The pub has continued to operate during the pandemic despite “incredibly challenging” conditions, offering home food delivery during the lockdown.
