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, The Tichborne Arms will be a fun, friendly and relaxed country pub and gardens. A place to meet, eat, drink and chat at any time of day with breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily, as well as an array of cakes to enjoy with coffees and teas. 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 front of house team will be key to delivering that experience.
This is a hands-on role with varied responsibilities; taking used plates, cups, cutlery and other utensils from tables to the kitchen for washing, wiping down tables, restocking cutlery, sauces & napkins and ensuring tables are ready for the next guests. You'll also assist the House Team by bringing out food and drinks ordered. You will be an integral part of the team, ensuring the pub is clean and beautifully presented at all times. Meanwhile you'll pay close attention to guests and inform the House Team when anyone needs something, or you can attend to the guest yourself. As a brand new, small, close-knit team, this is an opportunity to join us from the very beginning and be part of nurturing a truly great team culture. We will always look out for each other, continually motivate each other to be the best we can be and have a great time while taking pride in our work.
Who are we looking for?
You will be someone with a warm and sunny personality. You will be confident enough to ask questions - won’t say 'yes' when you mean 'I don’t know' or struggle with tasks that could be made easier by asking for help or advice. You also needn't be shy of telling us how we can do better. You'll be a natural team player, a capable and enthusiastic person, with a positive, can-do attitude. You will be open to growing and developing within your role. The ability to remain focused in an environment with many distractions is also key.
