We are due to re-open the exceptional Lost Boy in September following a meticulous refurbishment of this beautiful Georgian building in the heart of Farnham. From breakfast and into the evening, The Lost Boy will have a modern sense of relaxed style, service and hospitality.  As well as an 80-cover restaurant, there will be a spacious bar serving hot and cold drinks, a choice of cosy seating areas, a function room and newly replanted and extended gardens and terrace areas.

We are recruiting the best talent to join our chef and kitchen team and learn our menu, practices and standards before we open.

Oakman Inns is an expanding, independent pub group which operates over 20 distinctive pubs in the South-East, the Home Counties and West Midlands and has an award-winning reputation for supporting and developing the careers of each individual with our well-regarded Oakmanology Training Programme.

Open all day from breakfast, we are looking for all positions – both part and full time – from Breakfast Chefs, Chefs de Partie, Sous and Commis Chefs, Pizzaioli and a new Head Chef. Mediterranean cuisine has a big influence on our menus. All our dishes – including our authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas - are freshly prepared on site to order in our state-of-the-art open theatre-style kitchen, using the highest quality, fresh, seasonal, sustainable ingredients. Our suppliers are required to pass our sustainability criteria and our chefs have the opportunity to be innovative and creative with their Daily Specials menu.

Whether this is your first experience in hospitality, or you are a skilled professional who has worked in a restaurant or bar previously, we offer attractive packages which include Apprenticeships, flexible hours and shifts, plus a successful Chef Training Academy and training programme that not only provide long-term career opportunities as you learn new skills, but also support you with a progressive wage structure and rewarding incentive schemes and benefits.

Training will start immediately at one of our other venues, so If you have a passion for delivering service excellence, a love for preparing quality, fresh food with a flair for Mediterranean cuisine and a great team spirit, please get in touch to arrange to meet us at one of our recruitment days in Farnham on the 13th, 19th or 25th July.
