Summary: 
We are a small family team on a mission to inspire a love of wine, far beyond the bottle. Born from a challenge to redefine how our family used our slice of Devon, we wanted to grow something unusual that we could all be proud of. With a love of wine and the land, we jumped feet first into the world of English wine and now grow 5000+ vines here on the edge of Dartmoor. In 2020 we opened our new kitchen and expanded shop as well as our new on-site winery. 

As we look forward we are looking for someone to join our team who is passionate and eager to create an enjoyable dining experience for our customers. You will have the opportunity to help shape and develop our new kitchen experience whilst building on your own skills in the kitchen.  

Your role will be integral to running the kitchen. You will help our cook in most aspects of daily kitchen work including prep work, assembly and presentation of meals as well as pot washing and daily cleaning duties. 

What’s in it for me? 

  • You’ll be part of something exciting and be integral to the success of our recent expansion. 
  • You’ll work as part of a small, friendly and passionate group and become part of the team. 
  • You’ll be supported in expanding your learning, including the potential to attend training courses. 
  • You’ll have the opportunity to learn about wine, growing vines and winemaking/tasting in house. 
  • You will have the opportunity to take part in our casual weekly team catch up and wine tasting. (18+ to drink alcohol)  

What will I be doing and what is required of me:

  • Your main role will be supporting the kitchen in day to day duties. 
  • This includes prep work, assisting during service, cleaning and stock management. 
  • You will champion our mission and uphold our standards. 
  • You must be willing to work weekends as well as weekdays.
  • You must be capable of working in a busy environment, as part of a team and ensuring high quality presentation at all times.
  • You must be reliable, have good timekeeping skills and work well as part of a team, as well as displaying initiative when working alone. 
  • You will need your own transport to and from the vineyard as access through public transport is limited. 

What do I need:

  • Must have the ability to work as part of a busy team.
  • A passion for quality food + drink and a love of Devon. 
  • Experience working in kitchens will be favoured but isn’t essential
  • You will need the desire to learn and expand your skill set. 
  • You will need your own transport to and from the vineyard as access through public transport is limited. 
  • You must be willing to work weekends as well as weekdays.
