Job description

We are looking for someone to add to our passionate and enthusiastic team in the restaurant on our organic, regenerative farm. It will be on a part-time basis and will include roughly 30-40 hours per week, 3-4 nights of service with a fair amount of prep and setting up. Pay would be between £11 - £14 per hour depending on experience + tips. Start is mid June.

Based at the foot of the Pentland hills we are located 30 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh. If you don't have a car our team does a lot of lift sharing and there is also a bus service that runs from Edinburgh center to the end of our road.

It is an opportinity to drive and develop the restaurant. We are a team with significant potential and have been lucky enough to have been sold out for every night since we opened. 

Our menu is driven by the seasons and what we produce on the farm. The restaurant is always run as a 6 course set menu 4 days/week. The menu changes not only from week to week but also daily as we move with the seasons. We also host a number of private events and collaborations throughout the year as well as have farm open days.
