Host/Hostess - Park Terrace Restaurant - Royal Garden Hotel, London

A fantastic opportunity for a Host/ Hostess has arisen in our Park Terrace Restaurant.

As the Royal Garden Hotel’s all day dining Restaurant, the Park Terrace is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. At the Park Terrace we pride ourselves in offering international cuisine with only the very best of British produce, in a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. The Royal Garden Hotel is a 394 bedroom, five red star hotel, which prides itself in delivering a truly distinctive service.

As Host/ Hostess you are the first point of contact for our guests in the Park Terrace, whether you meet and greet our guests face to face when they come to the restaurant or whether you take a restaurant booking on the telephone. You will always strive to give a lasting and a truly five star first impression, making sure that the guests are seated comfortably. In particular during busy periods, you will need to retain a good overview of the seating plan in the restaurant, ensuring that the operation runs smoothly. The Host/ Hostess position requires you to multi-task and to be able to work across different functions in the restaurant and bar when required.

The right candidate for the Host/Hostess role will be an enthusiastic, personable and positive individual who brings previous Food and Beverage experience, ideally in a similar establishment.

You will need to be very well presented, have excellent command of spoken and written English and a pleasant and professional telephone manner. Knowledge of a second modern language is an asset. You need to be a strong communicator to ensure that important information is passed on to guests, the restaurant staff and the kitchen. You need to work well under pressure and bring good administration skills.

You must have strong knowledge of Microsoft Office and Outlook. Knowledge of Open Table system would be ideal. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who is looking to further their skills and to develop their career in a busy five star environment and who is looking for a stepping stone position into a supervisory capacity.
