Head Chef - Axbridge
Head Chef - The Lamb Inn, Axbridge
Up to £30,000 package including Bonus Scheme
In 1978 we shut out the world and made beer. At that time, no one was risking it all starting a traditional brewery, making simple, premium, easy-drinking ale. To do so was an act of defiance. Or madness. Fast forward to today and we’re holding fast to our values and heading off on another exciting journey. This time we’re defying convention by significantly expanding and investing in our diverse and distinctive collection of pubs and inns, with everything from bustling high-street pubs, cosy country inns and beautiful boutique hotels across the south and west of England.
Located in the beautiful Cheddar Valley market town of Axbridge, the Lamb is a great, traditional English pub. Dating back to 1480, the Lamb has all the features you’d expect from a pub just shy of 600 years old – low beams, open fireplaces and country bric-a-brac on its walls. The Lamb serves up traditional pub food, using fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients, delicious cask ale and is the perfect place to stop by after a country walk nearby.
