Head Chef

Railway Hotel

WorthingPlus Bonus, Plus Tips Full time

.The Railway Hotel is the latest gem in Portobello's portfolio.

A beautifully refurbished pub, dining & hotel, A stones throw from the pier in Worthing and right opposite the mainline station.

We expect the Railway to be the place where people meet, to eat, drink and have a good old catch up, with family, friends and colleagues, our offer will be premium and delivered with excellence, every-time.

Our food will be fresh & seasonal, with a good mixture of pub classics and 'on trend' dishes.

Pub Specifics

The Railway will boast 35 boutique hotel rooms, so a hotel back ground is preferred, but by no means essential.

We expect the business to take at least £40k per week, so candidates should have experience running pubs with a decent food / liquor split.

The pub is a major refurbishment, and has been closed for 6 months whilst the builders have been on site, so we need someone with a 'can do' attitude, plenty of personality and that is prepared to walk the streets, beaches & pier to get to know 'their customers'
