CASTLE HARROW - KITCHEN

The Castle is an old, traditional pub, serving a largely local crowd with fresh food and ales. Plenty of original 18th century features make this a place of real character.

What we can offer you;

  • Enjoy the fast-paced fun of pub life
  • Learn new skills to enhance your career with our industry leading training and development.
  • Belong to a supportive, close-knit team
  • Benefit from a competitive salary and great discounts including 20% in all Fuller's pubs and heavily discounted stays in our hotels.

The Castle Harrow on the Hill is looking for a passionate Sous Chef, who can bring their skills and experience to the team whilst supporting the Head Chef.

The Castle is a traditional pub at the heart of the local community. Our extensive food offer features the best fresh seasonal ingredients and ranges from our full a la carte menu and prix fixe lunch, to weekend brunch, epic Sunday roasts and summer BBQs in the garden.

We have a well organised kitchen team, who have delivered consistent sales growth and high standards over the past 18 months. You will be central to the continued success, with the ability to organise and motivate the team during service, whilst managing the administrative side of the role in the Head Chef’s absence – including stock taking, ordering and health and safety responsibilities.

We are offering a competitive salary plus a share of Tronc as well as  great company benefits, including a generous discount across the Fuller’s estate.

We will also fully support your future development - the Chef Scholarship training course offers a great opportunity to progress within Fuller’s.

Our shift patterns are well balanced, with a maximum 45 hours per week, two days off and one weekend in six scheduled off.

And you’ll be supported every step of the way by a team of talented Executive Chefs and Fuller’s training team to help you to develop your career.

You’ll need to be a talented chef with passion for fresh food and a love of kitchen camaraderie. You’ll be able to bring the best out in others – and you’ll take immense pride in every successful service.
