Bath City Farm Café Cooks

Are you someone who is passionate about food and enjoys cooking vibrant, seasonal and nutritious dishes?

You might have professional experience working in a café or restaurant kitchen or maybe you have skills developed in a community setting.

If you would like to be part of the team at our new community café and you are able to prepare visually appealing dishes from scratch, using fresh ingredients that are healthy, local and seasonal then this could be the role for you.

The dishes at the farm café tell the field to fork story, promoting produce that is grown on the farm and helping to showcase the farm’s produce.

The Farm Café
Set within the communities of Twerton and Whiteway, the building is 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.

The cafe is open Tuesdays to Saturdays and we serve breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake throughout the day.

The Café Cooks are responsible for delivering the breakfast and lunch service at the café. They also support participants of the farm’s catering programmes (who are also supported by our Jobs Coach) to assist with the preparation of dishes, front of house and washing up.
