Recruiting – Sous Chef

We are currently looking for a Sous Chef to join the business. The Sous Chef role is vital to the success of the pub and we are looking for someone who has a passion for fresh food, a desire to make guests happy and a creative flair to produce dishes that fly out of our kitchen.

Our beautiful quintessential English pub is set in the picturesque, rolling Surrey Hills and has charm and a warm, bright, but cosy feel about it. In the summer months guests can enjoy a cool pint of beer or a glass of chilled wine in our delightful gardens, whilst eating and relaxing with friends and family or come and sit by our alluring roaring wood fires, lit in the cooler, darker winter months. Our menu is all prepared using locally sourced fresh ingredients.

We were recently runners up in both Surrey Life Magazine ‘Best Surrey Pub 2018’ and Muddy Stilettos ‘Pub of the Year’ . Both awards required nominations from our guests to reach the finals. These nominations demonstrate our focus on our guests experience and show the direction we are continuing to take the pub in.
