Job description:

The Croft Inn is a popular Scottish restaurant and bar situated on the edge of Glenlivet Estate and the Cairngorm National Park. We are a remote inn situated only 30 minutes from Elgin and an hour from Inverness. We are a traditional privately owned inn, we have a good local following and see many tourists in the area visiting us throughout the season.

We have 4 holiday homes which are separate to the inn but we find these are all booked out every weekend during the peak of the season. We are not open for breakfasts, we open at mid-day through until around 10pm.

We are looking for a Sole chef to successfully run the kitchen and produce quality meals that we are known for. You will be responsible for all aspects of the kitchen including ordering and maintaining high standards of health and hygiene. You will have a kitchen porter in with you at weekends and during busier periods of the week but you will essentially be in the kitchen by yourself for most of the time. You must be able to successfully work with the front of house team, we have an excellent front of house team in place. We serve traditional Scottish cuisine and use produce from around the area including local venison. We have a menu in place but we always encourage new ideas and are open to suggestions.

This would ideally suit someone who enjoys the outdoors as there is mountain bike trails and plenty of hill walks in the area.

The position is available as soon as possible for the right candidate and is available until the end of the season in November.
