HEAD CHEF (URGENTLY REQUIRED)

Is this you? If so we desperately want to hear from you.

As a head or executive chef, everyone in the kitchen, from the pot wash to the commis chef, is looking to you for inspiration and you’ll also need to be able to work comfortably with the front of house staff too. Your menus will set the tone for our restaurant, and the quality and pricing of the food you produce will be instrumental in developing the business.

Sited close to Chequers, the country home of Prime Ministers, you may even be called upon to provide food for international dignitaries at The Plough. Previous PM The Right Honourable David Cameron used to call in from time to time and famously he entertained the Chinese President here.

Post would suit a ‘people person’ who enjoys the fast pace of the kitchen and can consistently produce top quality dishes under pressure. Someone with leadership skills who relishes taking responsibility for the running of the kitchen, but also knows when and how to delegate. Especially someone with a strong desire to create imaginative new “pub orientated” dishes and menus.

This post has arisen suddenly, so we have an urgent need to fill the position as soon as possible. (Read More)
