Our Head Chefs have plenty of autonomy over their menu. We just ask for a few things; that you will lead and inspire your team from the front.

We want creative, passionate people to deliver consistent, fresh, seasonal food. We expect good health & safety standards, and a well-trained team.

We are not interested in foams, gels & smears! We need proper chefs that cook great ingredients perfectly every time, we want our main menu to change with the seasons, and specials that show imagination, flair and personality.

You will have full responsibility for your Food GP and will be rewarded for delivering.

You will work closely with your management team, including your GM, so that you can partner the finest food with the pubs drinks offer, service and atmosphere and create unforgettable experiences that our customers return for time and time again.
