The Old Black Horse is a country pub and kitchen located in Mapperley village on the edge of Shipley Country Park in Derbyshire. The pub has recently been sold and is now a free house, meaning we are no longer tied to any brewery or major chain, giving us full flexibility. The food side of the pub is already a popular service, especially busy at weekends, however we are now looking for the right head chef who can help us to drive the food side of the business further forward.
The Job will initially involve working with a small team, and on your own on quieter days, to produce main menu meals every day, a full carvery on Sunday's and home made food for our theme nights, i.e pie night, curry night, etc.
In around 6 - 8 months time, we will be expecting the right candidate to write, cost and execute a complete menu overhaul of their own. The right candidate will have experince in various aspects of kitchen management, including stock control, ordering, food safety and associated paperwork, allergens and menu costings.
Initially you'll be expected to work in the region of 40 to 48 hours. You will be expected to work at least 5 days a week, including weekends and bank holidays. Salary is negotiable, but expected to be in the region of £19,000 to £24,000 depending on experience.
This is an exciting opportunity for any chef looking to be able to put his or her own stamp onto a kitchen by eventually introducing their own menu.
