Job Description

The Mill on the Exe is a contemporary pub with comfy rooms that enjoys a tranquil riverside location on the outskirts of Exeter city centre.

Nestled beside the gardens that run alongside Blackaller Weir and the Millstone footbridge, it’s easy to feel completely transported from the hustle and bustle of urban life here. You’ll be working in a picturesque corner of the city, with a wealth of things to see and do lying mere moments away.

We’re looking for an Sous Chef/Assistant Head Chef to join our talented kitchen team. Supporting the Head Chef, you’ll help ensure the smooth running of a fast-paced environment, working alongside passionate people and cooking with locally sourced produce to provide experiences that delight our guests. 

About you: 

  • Taking the helm when the Head Chef is away, you inspire the Kitchen Team and take pride in overseeing a quality food offering.
  • You have a passion for creating culinary delights from quality, locally sourced ingredients.
  • You’re a whizz when it comes to product knowledge, adapting to menu changes and specials with ease.
  • You are a natural communicator with the ability to forge strong relationships, lead by example, and embody a positive team spirit.
  • You know food health and safety regulations like the back of your hand.
  • Being commercially minded, you understand budgets and sales targets, and play your part in helping to achieve them.
  • Having a wealth of experience in a similar role means you are able to recognise when team members need help and you’ll support where needed.
  • You go above and beyond to ensure a consistently high level of service, supporting the full team including Front and Back of House during peak times.
  • You take ownership of a specific area of the kitchen, supporting the Head Chef and playing a key role in the smooth running of the food operation.
  • Keeping a watchful eye over customer feedback means you are always adapting to maintain high standards and improve where necessary.

What we will offer you in return: 

  • 30% off food and drink in our pubs.
  • 50% off overnight stays in our pubs.
  • A free two-night stay in our pubs every year.
  • Westfield Rewards, including discounts and rewards from hundreds of leading retailers, restaurants, and destinations.
  • Cycle to work scheme on select roles.
  • Learning and development opportunities.
  • Career progression.
  • Free food on shift.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Flexible working.
  • Paid time off to volunteer for charity.
