Job description

About the role

Location: The Pig near Bath, Hunstrete , Bath

Hours: Full Time, 48 Hours Per Week.

Salary: Highly competitive, plus service charge and annual bonus. Further details provided upon application.

THE PIG-near Bath is on the lookout for a creative Head Chef. This is a truly rare opportunity to lead and inspire a talented team of 20+ Chefs who all thrive from cooking simple British food!

Our brigade work hand in hand with our team of highly skilled and knowledgeable Kitchen Gardeners to influence the dishes that make up our popular 25-mile menu. As Head Chef, you will not only be supported by a productive workforce, but also by the local farmers and small producers, who supply anything that we cannot grow or produce within our two-acre kitchen garden.

THE PIG-near Bath is a ‘restaurant with rooms’ serving an average of 175 covers per day, plus a whopping 90% room occupancy! Our menus change daily - highlighting the flavours of the garden, using only the freshest ingredients. For a more casual offering, our outdoor wood-oven opens in Spring serving delicious flatbreads and wood-fired treats.

What makes us different:

  • Everything is ‘hands-on’. From foraging to butchery, our Chefs get their hands dirty.
  • You will be a member of a wider, close-knit crew. PIG Head Chefs meet quarterly to share ideas and celebrate achievements.
  • Involved in a business which aims to achieve highly sustainable kitchens. THE PIG hotels were awarded 3 stars by the SRA in 2023.
  • Working within an environment which has a food revenue in the excess of £2million per year.
  • Our menu is all about simplicity. Showcasing flavour without over-complicating dishes.
  • The brigade – We share success together, help each other and respect everyone’s position within the kitchen.
  • We run an award-winning apprenticeship programme. You will take an active role in leading, teaching and inspiring the apprentices.
  • No one in our business gets paid less that the National Living Wage, regardless of age.
  • We are an expanding group. With new hotel openings on the horizon, we guarantee exciting opportunities for those that seek to be challenged and harvest rewards.

About you:

We are seeking a Head Chef with a minimum of 5 years’ experience working in a similar establishment at a Head Chef level. Exposure to a 2 AA Rosette restaurant is beneficial, but at THE PIG, we do not chase stars.

Come with enthusiasm, your knives and an open mind that this opportunity is not your regular Head Chef role. You will need to have excellent organisation skills and the ability to produce consistent results. A genuine interest in seasonality and sustainability is a must, along with creating an enjoyable work environment.

We are dedicated to making THE PIGs an inspiring, exciting, and fun place to work and in return for your commitment to us you can expect something a little different:

  • Complimentary bed & breakfast stays across our group, and discounted room rates for family & friends.
  • 35% off food & beverage, plus discounted spa treatments and festival tickets.
  • Numerous discounts via our Perkbox scheme – from travel, leisure, tech, clothing and more.
  • 28 days holiday, rising by 1 day each year for the first 5 years.
  • Enhanced family leave packages.
  • A commitment to providing craft and accredited training for all.
  • Meals on duty.
  • Free, on-site staff parking.

James Golding, Chef Director – THE PIG Hotels : ‘THE PIGs food philosophy stems from working with the seasons and Kitchen Gardens. We nurture the next generation of like-minded Chefs’.
