THE PIG at Combe is looking for a Passionate and Customer Focused Host/Hostess to join this friendly team at one of the most exciting and rapidly growing hotel and restaurant groups in the UK.
Ideal candidates will be as passionate about good food and fabulous drinks as we are, while having a thirst for knowledge and the willingness to learn.

As Host/Hostess you will be the first point of call for our diners and as such we are searching for a confident individual, capable of conversing effortlessly with our diverse range of guests, with the ability to adapt to their needs and think on their feet.
Who are we?
The most recent addition to the litter! THE PIG-at Combe is nestled in the Otter Valley near Honiton, Devon. This secluded, mellow, honey-coloured Elizabethan gem is set in 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire countryside.
Designed in the style that has become THE PIG's signature, it features a panelled garden restaurant, a restored Georgian Kitchen for dinner parties, 27 bedrooms and massage treatment rooms in the walled infusion garden.
It is more than a boutique hotel, THE PIG-at Combe is an award-winning restaurant with rooms, with an obsessive commitment to home grown and local produce. Uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours. We have a further commitment to our 25 mile menu - whereby some 85% of fresh ingredients are sourced in the local area.
