Chef for Remote Scottish Highland Restaurant

Doune Dining Room and Stone Lodges, Doune, Knoydart

Chef for Remote Scottish Highland Restaurant
Doune Here Ltd

We're looking for two new members of our team here at Doune, for an exciting opportunity to work at our genuinely unique micro-hotel and dining room on the edge of Britain's Last Wilderness, Knoydart.

The first new member of staff we need is an experienced cook who can work independently, creating delicious dishes using locally sourced meats, seafood and fresh produce. We serve breakfast with a varied simple hot offering such as Shakshouka, Home made baked beans or Simple bacon and eggs, alongside home made granola, muesli and yogurt to a maximum of twenty residents each day.

Each guest takes with them a packed lunch filled with home making and rolls. Dinner is a set meal each evening with each diner eating the same dish served from a central table, alongside any variations for dietary needs. We enjoy Moroccan and Indian style cooking as well as Scottich traditional dishes and enjoy some incredible fresh seafood, including crabs and lobsters from our own pots in the bay. We are also looking to deliver a lunch offer to external guests, giving people the opportunity to spend a day at Doune.

In addition to the restaurant are working this summer on our vegetable and herb garden and there are opportunities to help us with our garden, as well as to learn about chicken and pig management. Finally, there is the opportunity to join us on a "Nose to Tail" butchery course in October to learn how to butcher and optimise our small gang of Kune Kune GOP pigs! (aka garbage disposal units!) 

The second new team member will be able to deliver and support front of house activities. You'll be welcoming, hosting and serving guests while also willing to roll sleeves up and help in the kitchen. A warm welcome is a big part of the guest experience at Doune and we are looking for a team member who can deliver this whilst being an efficient front of house team member

Both positions are seasonal until the beginning of October with accommodation provided. This is a brilliant opportunity to demonstrate your skills and learn new ones while saving up for travelling during the winter.

Please get in touch to find out more details.
