The Royal Castle occupies a landmark location in the heart of Dartmouth. Our award-winning 17th-century hotel enjoys enviable views over the River Dart and offers the perfect place for enjoying a drink and a bite to eat.

You’ll be working in a picturesque corner of South Devon adorned with serene outdoor spaces that will take your breath away. While the waterside offers a restful escape, the town itself buzzes with life, striking a perfect balance that provides something for everyone.

We’re looking for an Sous Chef/Assistant Head Chef to join our talented kitchen team. Supporting the Head Chef, you’ll help ensure the smooth running of a fast-paced environment, working alongside passionate people and cooking with locally sourced produce to provide experiences that delight our guests. 

About you: 

  • Taking the helm when the Head Chef is away, you inspire the Kitchen Team and take pride in overseeing a quality food offering.
  • You have a passion for creating culinary delights from quality, locally sourced ingredients.
  • You’re a whizz when it comes to product knowledge, adapting to menu changes and specials with ease.
  • You are a natural communicator with the ability to forge strong relationships, lead by example, and embody a positive team spirit.
  • 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.
  • Having a wealth of experience in a similar role means you are able to recognise when team members need help and you’ll support where needed.
  • You go above and beyond to ensure a consistently high level of service, supporting the full team including Front and Back of House during peak times.
  • You take ownership of a specific area of the kitchen, supporting the Head Chef and playing a key role in the smooth running of the food operation.
  • Keeping a watchful eye over customer feedback means you are always adapting to maintain high standards and improve where necessary.

What we will offer you in return: 

  • 30% off food and drink in our pubs.
  • 50% off overnight stays in our pubs.
  • A free two-night stay in our pubs every year.
  • Westfield Rewards, including discounts and rewards from hundreds of leading retailers, restaurants, and destinations.
  • Cycle to work scheme on select roles.
  • Learning and development opportunities.
  • Career progression.
  • Free food on shift.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Flexible working.
  • Paid time off to volunteer for charity. 

Some of the additional benefits to include are:

  • Free Higher Ferry pass to and from Torbay
  • Live in accommodation for the right candidate
  • Free parking in the centre of Dartmouth
  • Equal share of tips/gratuities
  • Working a 4 on 3 off weekly rota for a better work/life balance
