The St Margaret's Tavern is a busy gastro pub at the heart of the local community. We serve freshly prepared, seasonal dishes to a discerning local clientele as well as catering for large crowds on rugby days as we’re just a stones throw from Twickenham stadium. We also have a large outdoor terrace making the Tavern a real hot spot for fine dining either inside in our large indoor restaurant or outside in our colourful and vibrant garden.
This truly is a wonderful opportunity for a dedicated and passionate chef to join a well-established company that is passionate about delivering incredible food and exceptional service.
Here at Metro Pub Company, our mission is simple - we want this to be the best place you’ve ever worked.
We’re looking for a Head Chef who will share our passion for food to join our kitchen team. We’re looking for individuals with creativity, professionalism and a focused attitude. If you want to work in an environment where your idea are respected and the provenance and quality of our ingredients are of paramount importance, then a career with Metro could be ideal for you.
Our menu changes when the leaves fall, the temperature drops, the flowers come out and the sun shines. So while we always have pub favourites (with a bit of extra TLC on top), there’s always something new to work on too. What? Well, that’s up to you. You’ll develop and design the menu, train the team and take charge of everything. The menu – and the job – really are what you want to make of them.
So we’re just as interested in who you are as we are in your cooking. Of course, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of stock control, rotation and ordering, and how ingredients change with the seasons. But it’s more than that. What are you like to work with? How do you rally a team? Are you calm when things don’t go to plan? What makes you laugh? We want to get to know you and your way of doing things. And find out how you can bring them to St Margarets (TW1 2LJ)

Who are we, anyway?
We’re Metropolitan Pub Company (or Metro Pub Co for short). We’re part of Greene King, but they leave us to it. We’re big believers in local pubs being just that, with their own character and charm. We’ve got over 60 pubs in and around London: neighbourhood locals, city pubs and foodie ones. They’re all different – run by their managers, not a boardroom – and we like it that way.
Here’s what you need:
- Fluent spoken English
- The right to live and work in the UK.
