I am looking for a Head chef for a 4 star hotel situated in Grasmere.

Reporting to the Executive Chef, the Head Chef will manage the kitchen in the evenings (2pm -11pm) supporting a busy restaurant with on average 60 - 100 covers a night.

Working with the day shift, the position will also support delivery of afternoon teas, for which the hotel is renown and can deliver up to 100 on a busy weekend day.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of two years' experience working at Head Chef level within a quality, busy restaurant or hotel environment, having been trained in all aspects of the kitchen. Experience of banqueting is an advantage but not essential.
