Management positions in restaurants and hospitality businesses will usually earn the top average salaries of £30,000 - £40,000+, however these can rise further depending on the size of the organisation. Personnel such as waitresses / waiters, receptionists and bar staff are often the lowest paid, but this can be improved through tips and overtime.
