Brockhole on Windermere are seeking enthusiastic, energetic and charismatic people to join the front of house waiting-on team for The Gaddum Restaurant.

The Gaddum opened in 2018 and has received rave reviews ever since. Currently enjoying unprecedented growing demand we are needing to expand our great team, and are looking for people who want to work with lovely people, in a stunning environment, serving great food.
