About the Role

Lime Wood, Lyndhurst, Hampshire

We are looking for chefs ranging from Demi CDP to Senior CDP’s.

At Lime Wood, we enjoy a 3.5 day working week, a rota written 3 months in advance, commitment to a long weekend off a month and competitive salaries depending on experience, plus a cut of the service charge.

We run an ethical business with a commitment to the best staff food in the industry. We encourage our chefs to gain exposure to the fast and ever changing food scene around the country by eating out as part of our supper clubs.

You will be working with a menu dedicated to high quality, fresh produce, along with providing new ideas for our changing menu. As part of our team, you will have the opportunity to work hands-on throughout all areas of the kitchen, learning new skills whilst being provided the support and progression to develop your career.

If accommodation is what you need, then no need to worry. We offer staff accommodation available at various rates.

Experience at this level isn’t necessarily essential, although it would be nice! We need chefs with a positive working attitude and commitment to what we do.

If you like the idea of working for one of the most dynamic hotel groups in the country, headed up by our wonderfully and professional leader Angela Hartnett cooking real food without all the nonsense with drive and ambition – please feel free to be in touch.

Who we are...

Lime Wood is laid-back luxury at its best – a stunning building set in the middle of the forest landscape. A multi-award-winning 5-star 32 bed hotel with everything from our Herb House Spa to a Green house guests can eat in. Set in the heart of The New Forest National Park and 1 mile from the village of Lyndhurst
