Restaurant Manager

About us:

We’re a small but rapidly expanding group of fun and friendly places to eat, drink and sleep with a focus on great design, food and service. We currently have boutique hotels in London, Brighton, Cornwall and Oxfordshire, each uniquely designed to fit with their surroundings, featuring bars and restaurants that are popular with hotel guests and locals alike.

Our Cornwall hotel:

Artist Residence Cornwall is located in the old quarter of seaside town, Penzance, and features 24 individually decorated bedrooms and a relaxed restaurant and bar, The Cornish Barn. We like to think we provide a home away from home for our guests, with comfy bedrooms, friendly, down-to-earth service and deliciously wholesome food.

Our food & drink:

The Cornish Barn is a rustic restaurant, bar and smokehouse serving a wholesome menu with a focus on fresh Cornish produce – all helped along by craft beers and wines from local independent vineyards. Our head chef, Gareth, serves a seasonal menu showcasing Cornish produce and traditional cooking techniques. Meat and fish is cured, hung, smoked and charred for a rich and distinctive flavour – the ultimate in Cornish comfort food.
