Further your career in 2022. Join our family of food-led pubs!

We’re recruiting for our two well-regarded pubs, The Tolcarne Inn, Newlyn & The Packet Inn Smokehouse, Rosudgeon.

As we get ourselves organized and ready for what promises to be yet another busy season in West Cornwall, we’re looking for aspirational people to become part of our foodie family.

We’re always keen to hear from people with a passion for food and drink; we have kitchen or front of house, full and part-time positions available. Whether you’re a young person keen to train on the job, or an experienced chef looking for a senior position in a beautiful part of the world, we’d love to talk to you.

We have two sites.

One in Newlyn, The Tolcarne Inn. Here as you might expect, we focus on the bounty of the sea. Offering the very best of the landings at Newlyn Fish Market or direct from day boats (we are licensed to buy direct from the fishermen themselves) this incredible seafood is paired with the freshest seasonal produce, predominantly direct from local growers. Chef Owner Ben Tunnicliffe has been working closely with local farmers, and benefitting from the amazing produce grown throughout the year, for over 20 years here in West Penwith.

The second is a little more inland. At The Packet Inn Smokehouse, as the name suggests, we cook with smoke over charcoal. Focusing on the same very best quality produce, here again seasonality is the watchword. However, at The Packet the setting lends itself towards a meaty menu and so – as well as fresh seafood and locally-grown fruit and veg – we work with premium meat producers like Primrose Herd & Homage to the Bovine.

Our Chef Director Matt Smith and Owner Ben Tunnicliffe oversee both kitchens to guide the cooking in line with our ethos. Our aim is to provide genuine hospitality in the true sense of the word, in relaxed settings, with the highest standard of food and drink. In short the kind of places we enjoy eating at ourselves with friends and family.

We are currently particularly looking for:

Head Chef – The Tolcarne Inn

Food Prep Assistants

Commis Chefs

Chef de Partie

Assistant FOH Manager – The Packet Inn

Floor and Bar Staff

If you fancy a new challenge this year working with great ingredients and aspirational teams in our beautiful West Cornwall settings, get in touch today. Email our Chef Director Ben to get the ball rolling – ben@tolcarneinn.co.uk. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
