Head Chef


Description

The Masons Arms dates back to the 14th-century and resides in one of the South West’s most picturesque villages. Passing beneath its cosy thatched roof, you’ll be working in a characterful pub with comfy rooms. The interior charms with timber frames, low beamed ceilings, and the warmth of a log fire.

Branscombe is an idyllic rural destination that’s surrounded by rolling green hills, with its own beach being a short stroll from the pub.

We’re looking for a Head Chef to lead our talented kitchen team. You’ll oversee a fast-paced environment, manage passionate people, and cook with locally sourced produce to provide experiences that delight our guests.

  • You have a passion for creating culinary delights from quality, locally sourced ingredients.
  • A keen eye for details sees you take responsibility for all food leaving the kitchen, making sure it is up to spec, with costs kept in line with company targets.
  • Closely monitoring your team’s performance gives you the insight to give praise where it’s due, provide constructive feedback, and nurture talent.
  • You care about the environment and ensure that the handling and disposing of waste and recycling materials is done in the right way. Your team members see you as a source of knowledge. Thanks to you, they know our offering inside out and adapt to menu changes with ease. Y
  • You know food health and safety regulations like the back of your hand.
  • Being commercially minded, you understand budgets and sales targets, and play your part in helping to achieve them.
  • You make sure the kitchen it is kept looking spick and span, upholding the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness.
