About the Pub

We have two areas to the pub. Restaurant side and bar side.

Because we can get a large number of guests dining with us, we also tend to use the bar area as a dining area for families when no live sport is being shown.

We do however allow people to eat on the bar side when sport its being shown as we have a great sports snack selection.

We have a conservatory that we tend to use for larger bookings as they then have their own private area to enjoy their experience here at Flaming Grill.

Alot of our guests are what we call regulars. People who constantly return to us whether it be every couple of days, every week, or every month. But we do welcome all new guests with welcoming arms.

The fact our guests keep returning is because we are good at what we do.

About the role

We have an exciting opportunity in one of our Flaming Grill pubs for a Kitchen Manager/Head Chef in the Summit Inn, Royton.

This role is perfect blend of organisation, leadership and yes you guessed it cooking! You’ll lead from the front with guidance from your GM to manage and lead the whole food ordering, food service and team leadership processes of a high pressured, but high spirited branded kitchen. You’ve got bags of energy, enthusiasm and commitment anyway so this should be a piece of cake, right?

You’ll train, motivate and inspire your Kitchen team to deliver an efficient food operation and be responsible for the kitchen’s financial performance which in turn can lead to attractive rewards and promotion opportunities. You will be used to coping with busy service periods and all elements of Kitchen standards and hygiene to ensure that your Chefs work exactly the same whether you are in work or not. Whether you are in peak cooking service times, co-ordinating line checks and audits or new menu launches, 5 star standards is what were looking for here.

When you join us, you’ll experience our brand new and reworked induction programmes. Whether its stuff you already know, or a brand new experience, our dedicated training kitchens, online apps and pub based training with our support chefs we’ll ensure your toolkit is full so you’re ready to get cracking.

From there the sky is really the limit, with many of our GM’s coming from a Kitchen Manager and Head Chef background, or perhaps you’d like to be field based? Our Learning and development team will ensure your journey is bespoke and filled with qualifications too!

If you think you’re up for the challenge of this role we’d love to hear from you! Apply online or contact the recruitment team for a confidential discussion.
