You will need to be a good all-rounder managing all aspects of the kitchen operation including Stock Control, GP, H&S, Rotas, Ordering and forward planning. 

Think traditional Pub Classics, Burgers, Steaks, Fish and Chips, Sharing Boards and other seaside favourites.

Menus are designed by a group development chef for the brand, you must be able to follow and adhere to specification sheets and ensure a high quality consistent product is produced every time.
