We like to think of our team as a family. We have long-standing team and returning seasonal team members that return year after year. But as our current Head Chef is relocating and our Restaurant Manager is leaving to go travelling, we are looking for a suitable replacement to take over the reins.

The Head Chef needs to be a leader, a motivator, a mentor, someone who the team all look up to. In addition to strong cooking and menu planning skills you will be managing all costings, health and safety and achieving your GP every week.

Experience in a similar role is essential. If you have good initiative, strong people skills, and are ready to work in a busy-fast paced kitchen serving the best of local seasonal produce, get in touch.

Working with renowned chef, food writer and restaurateur Mark Hix, this is an amazing opportunity to work with an experienced and friendly team, with plenty to learn along the way.

The Fox Inn is a country pub in the Dorset village of Corscombe, so will you need to be able to drive for this position. The menu changes regularly based on the seasonal produce from local farmers, foragers, fishermen, or even grown in our own kitchen garden. Our focus is meat and game along with locally caught fish and seafood. We have 2 Annexe’s offering bed and breakfast accommodation Tuesday to Saturday.

If you have a passion for food, drink and hospitality and looking for your next role, then The Fox Inn could be for you.

In return for your hard work, we are offering a competitive wage and staff benefits to include:

  • 28 days holiday rising by 1 day per year to 33 days
  • Staff food (AM & PM)
  • Service charge and tips
  • Employee discount and complimentary meals
  • Pension

All applicants must either be eligible to live and work in the UK or must obtain permits to work in the UK prior to application. Documented evidence of eligibility will be required from candidates as part of the recruitment process.
