Chef De Partie
Location: Tichborne, Alresford, Hampshire
Transport: There are no public transport links to Tichborne village, so access to your own transport is essential
Salary: £9 -12 per hour, plus tips
Hours: Full and part time hours available
Experience: Previous experience in a similar role
Situated in the beautiful countryside village of Tichborne, just 10 minutes from Winchester, The Tichborne Arms is a truly special pub. Currently undergoing major renovations, a newly fit out kitchen will service two indoor pub dining areas, beautifully landscaped gardens and two outdoor terraces. Fresh produce will be at the heart of everything we do, sourced locally and from our very own kitchen garden. Wholesome, hearty, rustic fare, served in beautiful surroundings by a fun and friendly team to ensure our guests have an enchanting experience every visit... in a nutshell that's what we're all about. Our chefs will be key to ensuring that special experience for our guests.
As Chef De Partie you will be responsible for supporting the kitchen team to deliver hearty, wholesome food, beautifully presented in a rustic style. Stock will always be well-managed (we really don't like waste here) and 5-star hygiene standards maintained at all times.
Who are we looking for?
Someone with a passion for ingredients-led cooking who gets a real kick out of customer satisfaction. An interest in fire and grill cooking, smoking, foraging and tending a kitchen garden would be advantageous, as would a flair for presentation in a rustic style. Ultimately though, we are interested in your personality and potential – not just your previous experience. You must be able to keep calm under pressure when we are busy and be proactive at quieter times. Being a good communicator is key - it's not easy doing what we do, but we are a close-knit team here and will always conduct ourselves as such. Good, positive communication is key to being the best we can be.
