To find out more about what it’s like to work within Food & Beverage at the National Trust,
The Food & Beverage department have the main Stables cafe, the Coach House and a kiosk in the Kitchen Garden. The friendly team have said that they enjoy the environment and the work surroundings, the Stables block being over 200 years old with plenty of character.
The Stables cafe offers brunch, lunches, cream teas and cakes and traybakes, the majority produced on site. The Coach House is a smaller onsite outlet offering much of the same as the Stables.
The Kitchen Garden kiosk is set in the stunning surroundings of the old Kitchen Garden that is currently set for renovation next year, and a new play area is being installed in Summer 2022.
The kiosk offers soft scoop ice cream, hot and cold drinks and snacks.
It can be a fast paced environment but also enjoyable and relaxed.
We open at 10am and have seasonal closing times and are not open in the evenings so you will have a good work life balance.
Shift times are usually 8 hours long (including a 30 minute lunch break), although may be longer in the summer months and shorter in the winter months but will even out over the year.
As a member of the team you will receive a staff card which entitles you to free admission to all National Trust properties and 20% off in the cafes and retail shops.
