Head Bartender - Fellpack

We are very excited to find the right person to join Fellpack Limited to take charge of the drinks we serve at our Fellpack restaurant.

The Fellpack restaurant opened in 2017, a seasonal bistro, full of personality and charm, that takes great pride in the quality of food and drink served. We only open in the evenings, yet we see it as our responsibility to represent (in part) what’s great about the Lake District. Our team is passionate and committed, caring deeply about the customer experiences we provide.

The Head Bartender role at Fellpack is pivotal to the success of the site. A great evening starts with an excellent drink, served quickly, allowing for the rest of the restaurant experience to unfurl. We are looking for someone who can balance the care of cocktail making with the speed and efficiency necessary to meet customer expectations.

Furthermore, the role is also part of our cross-site drinks committee. The Head Bartender at Fellpack works closely with the Head Bartender at The Round, and the General Managers of our three sites, developing drinks and finessing service methodologies.

This is a great opportunity for someone committed to hospitality and genuinely excited about developing their career in the sector.

An excellent candidate for the role will be passionate about hospitality, adaptable and willing to learn, and tenacious in achieving success.
