WE ARE LOOKING FOR A COOK - CHEFS NEED NOT APPLY!

We are a daytime bistro style restaurant adjoined to the renouned Larch Cottage Nurseries. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is happy to lead and work within a small team in a family business. The hours are good, the team is good, the food is good all in beautiful surroundings!

We are looking for someone with a genuine passion for good food and someone who likes to cook with fresh ingredients to create simple, tasty dishes - the Mediterranean way ! You will be given the opportunity to put your own stamp on the menu and the freedom to experiment. Although we do serve fish, we do not serve meat on the menu. Everything we serve is freshly made on site including breads and cakes.

We have an organic kitchen garden which produces much of the vegetables for the restaurant. Our restaurant has been inspired by the food of the Mediterranean and are looking for someone who shares this passion. We are also looking for someone with ambition and drive to help expand the catering facilities on site.

Ideally you will be familiar with costings and paperwork that goes alongside running a busy kitchen but the most important thing is that you can cook !!

Normal hours 8am-5pm (maybe slightly longer during busy periods). 5 days out of 7.

This is a very different job to any other - more like a river cottage style way of life !

Good salary for the right candidate.

There is no closing date for this position- we will run the advert until we have found a suitable candidate.
