Are you tired of anti-social hours? At Restoration Yard we have excellent opportunities in a daytime operation for both a Head Chef and Sous Chef who want 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 restaurant with an additional 80 outdoor covers.

Head Chef
This is a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Chef who has passion in abundance and is driven to succeed. With plans afoot to grow and expand the business there is no better time to join us. Working closely with the Food & Beverage Manager you will guide and inspire the kitchen team ensuring we operate efficiently and profitably.

Sous Chef
You will help lead the team, playing a key role in ensuring the smooth running of the kitchen. You will assist in managing daily kitchen activities including overseeing staff, menu preparation, and monitoring/ordering stock.

Why work for us?
While regular weekend working and the occasional evening for weddings & events is required, as a daytime operation we offer sociable hour to fit around your life. We care about our people and their wellbeing and are happy to consider a 3 or 4 day week if that works for you.

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, as well as various other food outlets which are open throughout the year.
