Our client an aspiring Michelin Star Restaurant is seeking an experienced Head Sommelier to join their team. We are looking for a Sommelier ideally with a minimum of WSET level 3 and someone who has worked at 3 rosette/Michelin Star level restaurants in the UK.


The restaurant has a beautiful wine list consisting of 240 bins and is looking for a Head Sommelier who can bring new ideas and who will be responsible for the whole wine journey, from ordering to giving very personalised service on the restaurant floor.


As the Head Sommelier you will initially be the sole Sommelier, so we are looking for someone who is hands-on, has great customer service skills, is a team player and is happy to support the restaurant’s General Manager. As the restaurant gets more popular then additional Junior Sommeliers will be employed.


The restaurant can cater for 70 covers but currently is operating at 30-40 covers, but this will increase with the outstanding food, wine & service that is being given. These are exciting times for this restaurant, it’s already been Michelin recommended and the goal is to achieve its first official Michelin Star. So if you are interested in joining an ambitious and dynamic team we would love to hear from you.


We are in a position to organise interviews immediately, so don’t hesitate to send your CV to us today to find out more about this exciting Sommelier opportunity.
