Bath City Farm are looking for someone with lots of hospitality experience who has worked in multiple cafes and had a lead role in at least one, to take on this new and exciting role responsible for the leadership and development of our new community café. The café is currently under construction with a planned opening date of Easter weekend (mid-April) 2022.


As well as your excellent knowledge, skills and experience in catering and hospitality you will also be able to put business ideas into practice and manage budgets. You will be passionate about the opportunity to help develop our new community café, and excited to showcase the farm’s produce in an inspiring menu and provide work-based learning for participants of the farm’s mental health and learning disability programmes.


This role will involve setting up systems to enable smooth operations and excellent customer experience. Working with the cook you will develop a seasonal and affordable menu that showcases the farm’s produce and establishes the reputation of the Farm as a destination providing delicious food and drink.


The Manager will ensure the café meets high standards of sustainability in every way. It must deliver in terms of environmental impact, operate on a robust business model, integrate seamlessly with the farm’s social programmes, and provide an excellent experience for staff and trainees.


The Farm Café


Set within the communities of Twerton and Whiteway, the building will be full of natural light with outside terraced areas that look across the valley into the Georgian centre of Bath on one side. Adjacent is a children’s play area. In front of the café is an edible garden providing a visual connection between farm grown produce and the dishes served in the café.


Initially the café will be open Tuesday to Saturday, work hours will generally be 9am – 5pm. We will serve breakfast and lunch and coffee and cake throughout the day. Within 6-months we expect to extend opening hours to include Sundays and will look to facilitate occasional evening events. Some weekend and evening working may therefore be required.
