What you offer us?


We want our Sous Chefs to be our Head Chefs of the future. Our Sous Chefs should be the creative force behind our menus and specials. 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.


As a Sous Chef we expect you to step into the Head Chef’s clogs when they are off. Therefore, you will have a good understanding of how dishes are costed and have input to menu development, and daily specials.


You will be part of the management team and will have a seat around the table at weekly management meetings, as well as regular training & inspirational days with our Group Executive Chef & Area Chefs.


Who we are?


Woodford Greens finest, the regulars here are known as the "Spivs" (we are still not quite sure why?).


A proper pub, a place for all occasions for the people of the surrounding area and a true pillar of the community. A traditional bar greets you as you walk through the doors, with a beautiful, light and airy contemporary dining room and open kitchen to the rear, where are talented team produce some of the finest pub food for miles around.


A private hire room upstairs named after one of Woodfords most famous residents of the past, Winston Churchill gives space to party the weekend away, or host a number of local group meetings.
