Are you tired of anti-social hours and long shifts? At Restoration Yard we have the perfect opportunity in our daytime operation for a Commis Chef who wants to achieve a better work-life balance. You will be part of a team that create memorable moments whether our guests are with us for a spot of lunch, coffee & cake, or celebrating their wedding day. Our offering consists of a 100-seat beautiful restaurant with an additional 80 outdoor covers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has a passion for food, is a team player and understands the importance of hygiene. You will support the kitchen brigade in preparing food and maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness. In addition to our normal daytime operation, you will cater for weddings and other events, producing high quality food. Candidates should demonstrate relevant experience and the ability to work effectively in a busy kitchen.

Why work for us?
While regular weekend working and the occasional evening for weddings and events is required, as a primarily daytime operation we offer sociable hours to fit around your life. We care about our people and their wellbeing.

Dalkeith Country Park, an outstanding visitor attraction, is a truly special place. On the outskirts of Edinburgh set in a beautiful 1,000-acre estate you will discover our gorgeous courtyard which is home to The Kitchen, a stylish and contemporary eating experience; The Larder, for take away food and drinks; The Coffee Bar; as well as various other food outlets which are open throughout the year.
