Commis Chef, Ardlui Hotel, Argyll and the Islands

Salary:£8 per hour - paid weekly
Hours:40/50 hours per week
Days:5 or 6 days from 7, mixed shifts
Holidays:Statutory (28 days p/a)
Covers:Lunch: up to 100; Dinner: up to 150; Breakfast: up to 80; Functions: small occasional for up to 35

Full-time chefs:4 chefs plus 2 kitchen porters
Accommodation:A single room en-suite will be provided in one of the staff lodges in the holiday park priced at £30 per week. Electricity needs to be paid for as you use it via card meter. A security deposit is required for your accommodation, which is taken at £100 per week for the first 2 weeks
Job description:

We are a family run small 10 bedroom hotel on the banks of Loch Lomond catering for its own residents plus our self-catering holiday guests, as well as the owners of boats berthed in our 130 berth marina facility and the owners of holiday homes on our 92 pitch holiday park.

We also have a healthy passing trade from the busy A82 running past the hotel. We often cater for small functions (up to 80 persons), host live music and themed nights.

Our menu is quite large and mainly features good home made food. We also run a specials menu offering around 3 to 4 starters, 3 to 4 mains and a couple of desserts – all depending on the time of year. Fine dining we are not, but good, hearty grub crossing over into good quality gastro pub style meals. We use as much fresh and local ingredients as possible.

We are a seasonal hotel, being much busier in the summer months than the dead of winter. We close the hotel for the first 8 weeks immediately after New Year, although we do keep the pub open at the weekends offering a reduced menu. This is when most of our staff take their annual leave, and when we normally conduct maintenance works on the hotel. Bank and national holidays are obviously busy times for us.


We are on the northern most shores of Loch Lomond, about an hours drive from Glasgow. We have both a train station and a bus stop connecting us to the rest of the world.

Ardlui is a small hamlet - there is not much here apart from the hotel, marina & holiday park so it might not be for everyone. Although lively from Easter through to the end of October, it can get quiet during the off-season. Fantastic for people who love the great outdoors or watersports (we have our own on-site Wakeboarding School)!

We require 2 commis chefs to assist with all aspects of the hotel kitchen, including but not restricted to:
• Food Preparation
• Service
• Stock control
• HACCAP & Cook Safe Records

These positions are available now for the right candidates
