  • Chef

    Lower Mill Estate – Cirencester

    Our Food and Beverage team spans our two catering operations – Ballihoo at Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds and The Hurricane Terrace and Bar at Silverlake in Dorset.

    As you know, it’s been an incredibly tough few years being a chef. We understand that work-life balance is an absolute priority, so we work a rota to suit you first and foremost.

    Working at Ballihoo is very unique. Fundamentally, we believe in customer service is a way of life. We do this through our food, our service, and our personalities. We tap into our guests and treat them as we ourselves would like to be treated. With respect, honour, and love. We teach our younger colleagues valuable life skills on how to deal with many walks of society.

    Our team has a lot of autonomy, and they are often found foraging to make homemade goodies, brainstorming dishes, or coming up with ideas for themed events.

    Our senior team is passionate about personal development and through the importance of eating seasonally, outstanding customer service, and working on your feet, we champion the need of looking after your mind, body, and soul.

    Ballihoo is fun, it’s spacious, it’s outdoors (on the warmer days), the food is fresh, and the pay is great. Look forward to hearing from you soon.
