We are recruiting a Sommelier for Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.
Two Michelin stars, 180 covers a night. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal runs like a well-oiled machine, and we’re looking for a Sommelier who can keep pace.
This isn’t just a chance to learn what it takes to run a two-starred restaurant; it’s a chance to learn the history of British cuisine, from an eighteenth-century salamagundy to salmon cured with Earl Grey.
Of course, the standards of service expected at Dinner are only possible with a certain level of regimentation. But with regiments come ranks, and we believe in moving up them.
Everyone from our head chef to our maître d’ have been promoted from within. So as a Head Sommelier, if you’re ready to put the effort in, you can expect to progress quickly and move around.
After all, our hotels are international, and a fine stay means fine dining all over the world, from Tokyo to Tapei.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal would be the perfect place to inspire you to suggest the best food and wine combinations in order to ensure a wonderful guest experience.
You will be responsible for providing an excellent service in the whole restaurant. You will provide a courteous and efficient service to all guests and maintaining the levels of service to the highest standards.
