Restaurant and Bar Hosts at Homewood
a beautiful country hideaway near Bath 

We are delighted to share a unique opportunity to join our growing front of house team at the new Homewood, our country retreat just 15 minutes from Bath. Homewood is going through an exciting period of change and has been restyled to create a restful, country retreat. We are looking for creative, passionate people to join us in the restaurant and at the bar to host our guests and create happy, memorable experiences for all who come through our doors.

A role with us at Homewood will be the perfect first step for anyone who is looking to discover a career in a fun, creative industry where people are at the heart of all we do.

Homewood is the newest addition to The Kaleidoscope Collection; an independently-owned Collection of hotels that has creativity, playful eccentricity and innovation at its core. Each property, while in possession of its own unique personality exudes a love for life, an all-important sense of humour and a little bit of mischief.

Homewood people love to feast and forage, have their foodie heroes and will be confident to guide guests through our Homewood menus as developed by Marc Hardiman, our talented Executive Chef. Behind the bar, we understand the concept of a perfect serve; imparting passion and knowledge and creating drinking experiences to delight our guests, adding garnishes harvested from our garden as part of our seasonal serve. 

Our people are talented individualists often with a story to tell, with a plethora of artisan interests. They might be artists, wine purveyors, interested in travel and adventure but all our Homewood people have a flair for hosting with warm, effortless style. If you can envisage being part of our next chapter in the life at Homewood and would like to join us as we open our doors to our guests this Spring, we would love to hear from you.

Please send your CV and cover letter to [email protected], explaining why you would be particularly suitable to join us.
