Join Our Family!

We are always looking for talented and passionate people to join River Cottage. If you would like to apply to work with us please email careers@rivercottage.net with your CV and covering letter and we'll be in touch soon.

We love our people just as much as we love our food & it’s provenance. Whether you are a Chef or want to join our Front of House team, we want you to love working for us so we offer a variety of flexible shift patterns & strive to offer a great work life balance.

Not all of our vacancies are restaurant based. If you share our values and think that you could be a brilliant asset to our team at HQ then let us know!

We work with the best ingredients the South West has to offer, as nearly all our menu is created fresh. Working closely with our suppliers, our chefs have creative freedom on our specials board with the guidance of our executive chef Gelf Alderson.
