Back of House staff - Exeter

POLPO is seeking experienced back-of-house STAFF AT ALL LEVELS to join our exciting new Exeter restaurant. 

When POLPO first opened in London, this is what people said about it: 

“One of the most exciting eateries to open in London” – Richard Vines, Bloomberg 

“It is inspiring when done this well” – Rose Prince, Daily Telegraph 

“POLPO is the hottest table in town” – Marina O’Loughlin, Metro 

POLPO is a bàcaro. This is a Venetian word to describe a humble restaurant serving simple but authentic food, young local wines & classic Italian cocktails within a modest yet stylish setting featuring exposed brickwork, tin ceilings and copper bars. 

POLPO Ltd operates some of the most talked about restaurants, under the leadership of BBC2’s ‘Restaurant Man’ Russell Norman. POLPO Soho opened in October 2009 to immediate acclaim and we have since opened ten restaurants across London, Brighton & Bristol.
