Quantock Lakes Food 4 You

Short Order Chefs

Working with our Kitchen Manager and Directors we need restaurant chefs that can deal with a busy and sometimes unpredictable business.

Our restaurant menu is simple but very good, but the key to this is organisation and preparation. Food needs to go out quickly but perfectly. There is no room for movement here, we all agree a meal spec, that spec is documented and every meal every time must be as spec.

We change menus on a regular basis and everyone has imput in this. In addition to the restaurant kitchen there will be opportunities to help in the events business where every year we meet royalty, TV stars and lots of celebrities. Our businesses trade every weekend which will be on a rota basis but evening shifts will be mainly at weekends. No split shifts.

Must be aged 16 or over.

We pay well, our hours are better than most hospitality venues and we work in nice places with nice people. We would expect a full time chef with the right experience to start on at least £25,000 a year which is £480 a week.

We are happy to talk to people that we can develop in the restaurant and event business who may get paid less. And if you think you are worth more come and talk to us. Obviously you will also get paid holiday, uniform and food whilst on shift.

Hours and shifts – we are flexible regarding this. We have spaces for full or part time contracted staff with agreed hours every week on a rota basis. So we guarantee how many hours you will get every week and we agree a work pattern of which days and which times.

You will also get paid holiday and other benefits as included in your contract. We also have a bank of staff who pretty much work as and when. Some people work just in the summer. Some just in the winter. And some as and when we need them and as and when they can.

For these staff we pay the standard rate below and holiday pay is added to your hourly pay so there is no accrued holiday such as the guaranteed hours staff receive. We call these staff our casuals. Casuals work as much or as little as they want.


Standard rates of starting pay – all staff get uniform depending on role and food whilst on shift. Our contracted staff with fixed hours also received holiday pay which will be detailed in your contract. Casual staff get holiday pay with their hourly pay and so no holiday time accrual.

Starting pay rates are

  • Under 18 – £6.00 per hour plus 0.73p per hour holiday pay if casual working.
  • 18 – 20 – £7.50 per hour plus 0.94p per hour holiday pay if casual working.
  • Over 20 – £9.00 per hour plus £1.13 per hour holiday pay if casual working.

​​If you think you would like to join us but have the experience to justify a higher rate of pay just email us.

Please send a few details with work experience, what hours you are looking for and anything else of interest to Dawn. Please don’t Facebook, Instagram, Phone or anything else.
