Join Chef Jean and his team for a dining experience that will bring our 240 acre woodland estate to your table. Menus are designed around produce grown, found and foraged from our estate and is ever changing like the gardens themselves. If we couldn't source the produce from the estate, we use produce from local farmers who all share the same organic principles.
We are looking for a keen, passionate and friendly applicant to become part of our team as an Apprentice Commis Chef. The successful applicant will be working alongside a dedicated team of chefs cleaning, prepping cooking and producing fine foods. With fine and seasonal ingredients and produce, including the unique experience of using produce grown, found and foraged from the estate. If they are keen to learn then we have much to teach.
