Head Chef (The Seafood Bar)

Full Time

The Role

It is with great sadness that our Head Chef Andy is leaving the Seafood Bar for pastures new. Andy has been with us from day 1 and after 5 years at the helm has decided to seek out a new opportunity up country. It’s no secret that Andy has managed to create something very special in our little venue. These are big shoes to fill. But, fill them we must.

The Seafood Bar is our little bar based on Quay Hill in Falmouth, it’s small but prides itself on delivering some of the finest Seafood Falmouth has to offer. Small plates of premium locally sourced seafood put together into interesting dishes that complement the beer and wine on offer.

The role allows for creative freedom, adding your own flair and imagination to the food coming from the kitchen. You will work closely with your team to create dishes that reflect the flavour and craft also represented in our beers.
