We took a visit to Crown & Horseshoes, and got chatting to Luis Bernardo, the General Manager, about his journey working in hospitality.
Greene King Locals are a true breeding ground for personality. Not bound tightly to brand rules, the General Managers of these pubs get the freedom to really inject character into their venue, meaning no two pubs are the same. Focused on bringing communities together, they’re cozy little boozers and the ultimate place to connect with your friends and family for a lively evening.
And with so many jobs live at a range of Greene King Locals on our platform now, we thought we’d take a trip to a proper Locals pub to get a true feel for it.
Join us on our little adventure to Crown and Horseshoes, a true gem in Enfield and a real North London must-know for Summer.
Arriving in Enfield from Oakwood tube station, we took a 5 minute bus ride down the road to the centre of Enfield. Alongside the canal, trees and birds, this cozy pub feels like it’s really nestled within nature.

We got chatting to General Manager, Luis Bernardo, who has been working in Greene King pubs since he was 16 years old. His hospitality journey has taken him through various different levels in the industry.
Luis started as a part time cleaner when he was 16 before college. He then progressed into working in a bar, before becoming a floor supervisor. Starting uni, he supplemented his studies as a part time Team Leader, before going on to become an Assistant Manager for a friend’s pub – this was initially going to be a 6 month job, but in fact led to a 10 year career.
Luis discusses how his career was never planned. For him, hospitality was initially always going to be a short term stint to help out a friend, but he soon came to love the industry.
