We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our Food & Beverage Service team as a Sommelier.

Our cuisine reflects the style of our Head Chef Dorian Janmaat, who joined us following 3 years as Head Chef at Raymond Blanc’s 2 Michelin starred Restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.

This is not just any sommelier position, it is an exciting opportunity to inspire and enable others whilst making a significant impact to wine sales via recommendations and pairings that enhance the overall dining experience.

Are you a competent restaurant supervisor with a passion for wine that is infectious?

Does the thought of curating a list that will complement Dorians’ menu excite you? 

If so we would love to hear from you.
