Head Chef - Unicorn Hotel


Job Description

Up to £38,000 per annum

The Unicorn in Gunthorpe is converting to our premium ‘Signature’ brand and we have some exciting opportunities for you to become part of the team.

What is Signature?

Proper, authentic pub food is what we do. Think delicious plates of comforting favourites, with delightfully modern twists. Our guests are always made to feel welcome, whether having a beer and nibbles in the bar, or enjoying a leisurely meal in the dining area. Meats roasted low, perfectly paired with seasonal veg are at the heart of our ‘Slow Sundays,’ which celebrates the flavours, family and friends with that long-standing tradition, the Sunday Roast.

An anthology of crafted cask ales adorn the bar, juggling with expertly distilled gins, velvety reds, crisp whites and soft pinks. Our teams are experts from the perfect Pornstar Martini to an informed recommendation on the Cask Ale range.
