The Head Chef will enjoy considerable autonomy in the kitchen – leading a team of three other talented chefs that are totally focused on the preparation of up to 50 high quality covers per night plus modest lunch trade.

He or she will attend regular meetings with the Owner and General Manager to gauge progress made on “the journey”.

In line with the requirements of the Immigration Act 2016, all applicants must either be eligible to live and work in the UK or must obtain permits to work in the UK prior to application. Documented evidence of eligibility will be required from candidates as part of the recruitment process.
