The Mayfly is a beautiful Hampshire country pub located on the world famous Test River, close to the town of Stockbridge, serving stunning food all day to tourists and locals alike.

After a recent management change, we have a new, fresh & close-knit kitchen and front of house team, and are looking for a chef de partie to complete it.

The Mayfly will close down in December for a 2.5 million pound refurbishment which will guarantee this pub will be the crown of Fuller's pubs in Hampshire.

Upon reopening we will have 2 kitchens, one for outside service only and the other for the main restaurant. The new menu, will be created to offer fine dining at a high level and we hope to obtain rosette status within the first year of opening.

Shift patterns are 5 days out of 7 and generally consist of a mixture of 10:00 – 16:00/18:00 – 22:00 or 10:00 – 18:00 or 17:00 – 22:00, a mixed bag dependent on trade. We offer great opportunities to progress, and work for a company that really values growth and development. This is a fantastic chance for a budding Chef de Partie to really make an impact.

We are hoping to obtain further staff accommodation during the refurbishment and this can be discussed during your interview.

Come along and enjoy what will be an exciting future for all our team. Make memories last as we cater for weddings and private parties within the area. Shine at our future beer festivals and put your name on the map in an industry that we are all passionate about.
