We are currently recruiting for an Experienced Junior Sous Chef to join our team.

Our independently run, mixed operation offers high levels of customer service and serves freshly cooked food in a contemporary rustic environment, with beautiful views over the North Chalk Downs.

We pride ourselves in offering a freshly cooked, seasonal set of menus in our busy 80 cover restaurant. We are open seven days of the week for Breakfast & Lunch (including a vibrant and busy Sunday Lunch menu).
