Sous Chef

Job Description:

Come and Taste the difference in our Kitchen… Second in command in the kitchen brigade, Sous Chefs need to be passionate, methodical and dedicated. The role involves assisting the Head Chef to take responsibility for the kitchen department, food cost, ordering, food and health and safety. You will be required to ensure that all menu dishes are prepared with attention to detail and to the highest standard. You will be required to manage the kitchen brigade in the absence of a Head Chef as well as motivate the team and share knowledge, training and developing chefs within the team. Our menus include a la carte, daily specials and our dishes allow us the opportunity to showcase some of the best local food producers who share our passion for great local and seasonal products.

Kick back al fresco under the vine-covered pergola in our central courtyard. Sink into a leather armchair in the bar or lounge, and choose from over 100 whiskies and rums or savour one of the delicious cocktails. Train your palate with expert guidance in our wine cellar with the in-house Sommelier. Tuck into simple, robust dishes prepared with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients in our trademark bistro. Select your favourite cigar from the humidor and enjoy a smoke under the stars. Or disappear to Cave du Vin, a snug hideaway for intimate private parties, or make merry in the striking 1920s-inspired Ruinart private dining room - or how about a spectacular wedding or civil ceremony in The Dome? Join the locals in the laid back ambience of Pub du Vin next door, before sweeping up the magnificently restored carved staircase to one of 49 distinctive bedrooms. You'll find super-soft Egyptian cotton linen, big fluffy towels, roll top baths and drenching monsoon showers. For an overnight treat, weekend getaway, meeting or just lunch or coffee, our Brighton hotel should be your first resort.
