Job description:

Are you tired of anti-social hours? At Restoration Yard we have excellent opportunities in a daytime operation for both a Head Chef and Sous Chef who want to achieve a better work-life balance.

You will be part of a team that create memorable moments whether our guests are with us for a spot of lunch, coffee & cake, or celebrating their wedding day. Our offering consists of a 100 seat restaurant with an additional 80 outdoor covers.

Sous Chef
You will help lead the team, playing a key role in ensuring the smooth running of the kitchen. You will assist in managing daily kitchen activities including overseeing staff, menu preparation, and monitoring/ordering stock.

Why work for us?
While regular weekend working and the occasional evening for weddings & events is required, as a daytime operation we offer sociable hour to fit around your life. We care about our people and their wellbeing and are happy to consider a 3 or 4 day week if that works for you.

Dalkeith Country Park, an outstanding visitor attraction, is a truly special place. On the outskirts of Edinburgh set in a beautiful 1,000-acre estate you will discover our gorgeous courtyard which is home to The Kitchen; a stylish and contemporary eating experience, The Larder; for take away food and drinks, as well as various other food outlets which are open throughout the year.
