Pastry chef – The Seafood Restaurant

Some say the best part about a meal is the dessert! Apple mousse, smashed liquorice meringue and hot chocolate fondant are amongst some of our favourites at the Seafood Restaurant. If you're an experienced pastry chef (at Chef de Partie level) and passionate about sweet treats we would love for you to join our team.

The Seafood Restaurant was the first restaurant opened by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975. The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow is famous for establishing an international reputation for the very freshest fish and shellfish, often landed on our doorstep. In the centre of the restaurant is a Seafood Bar where guests can enjoy watching chefs assembling platters of oysters, langoustines and sashimi.

We're passionate about working with fresh ingredients and developing our people to be the best that they can be. You will have many opportunities to develop your skills and we will give you all of the guidance that you need. We take pride in being a family business that has been delivering exceptional service to our customers since our first restaurant, The Seafood Restaurant, was opened in Padstow in 1975.
