Job Description

Sous Chef

We are looking to appoint a passionate Sous Chef to join our very busy catering team, working closely with the brigade to make sure we deliver the very best service of fresh ingredients in our busy restaurant. You need to be able to contribute to the running of the kitchen and be capable of working within all areas.

The Lion, in one guise or another, has been providing food and shelter to weary travellers for hundreds of years and we are proud to be continuing this amazing tradition.

The old inn was fully refurbished and extended in 2008, including the addition of 15 guest rooms, in a comfy, eclectic style retaining the original building with its low ceiling, beams and now decorative fireplace, fondly referred to as ‘the old pub’.

At the beginning of 2015, we were delighted to introduce our latest addition – The Lion House. A beautifully presented function space for up to 150 people and a further 8 bedrooms.
