We've got some exciting plans for 2024 and are now looking for experienced cocktail bartenders to help mix things up in Winchester.
Our Bartenders are responsible for making drinks on spec to a consistently high standard and deliver them in a timely manner.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced drinks professional looking for a role in which they can get creative and stamp their mark on an award-winning, independent business.
