Food & Beverage Team Member

On the outskirts of the busy tourist hub of St Andrews, Rufflets is a stunning country house hotel set in 10 acres of beautiful gardens. Our guests choose us because they know that they’ll receive the best service away from the hustle and bustle of town, and you’ll feel the difference as soon as you step through the front door.

As well as the hotel operation, including 26 unique bedrooms and self-catering lodges and dining areas, we also take care of an award-winning events business in our function rooms, so there’s never a dull moment.

The Role

Our Food & Beverage Team is the biggest and busiest in the hotel, working around the clock to keep guests fed and watered. We have positions available for multi-talented bar and waiting team members on a part-time or full-time basis, across a range of shift patterns. You'll be serving and taking care of guests in the bars, dining spaces and event facilities, and we would love to hear from you if you’re someone who has lots of energy for meeting new people.
