We have a 60 cover cafe in the village which has been open for 20 months and is growing in popularity with locals and visitors alike. We have very high standards of hygiene, behaviour, service and food creation with a menu that changes with the seasons but lots of specials and baking required in-house. 

The place is very busy and fast-paced and the kitchen being both open and small, can be challenging but with the right attitude, a strong work ethic, reliability and creativity as your key attributes, you will shine in this great business.
