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.

Sink into soft leather for an aperitif or nightcap. Discover a world of fine wines in the Laroche wine tasting room, or sip your favourite in the bar with friends. Tuck into lovingly prepared seasonal fair in our trademark Bistro, or dine al fresco. Enjoy a private dinner, party, wedding or civil ceremony in one of our quirky function rooms. Select a cigar from the humidor and retreat to our snug cigar shack. Or why not head to Health du Vin for a soothing spa treatment? And, when you're ready for sleep, bid goodnight and glide up to one of our 49 distinctive bedrooms. Each welcomes you with a huge hand-sprung mattress, delightfully soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, and a deep roll top bath or monsoon shower. So rest assured, when you join us our Cheltenham hotel for a mid or weekend break, business meeting or special occasion, you'll be treated like, well, royalty.
