Assistant Restaurant Manager at The Oyster Shack

The Oyster Shack is excited to present a new opportunity for someone to join our permanent team. This is a unique opportunity at The Oyster Shack, where permanent roles only come up very rarely.


We are looking for someone with excellent managerial and personable skills to take on the full time role of Assistant Restaurant Manager.


The Oyster Shack is an independently run, seafood restaurant based in the most glorious part of South Devon, a stones throw away from Bigbury beach. We aim to serve the finest quality produce, cooked to the highest standard, all while in a gorgeously relaxed atmosphere for friends, families and anyone with a sweet spot for the taste of the sea.


You will be required to work closely with a small team of highly experienced chefs and restauranteurs. You will work across a range of disciplines associated with the day-to-day running and long term strategies for the future of The Oyster Shack.

Restaurant experience is essential, though experience in closely associated industries would be considered (Arts and Culture, Entertainment, Food and Drink in retail).


Working hours vary through the seasons, with up to 48 hours during the peak months and down to 24 hours during quiet months. Very flexible working hours and days, designed to work for your needs alongside those of The Oyster Shack.


Start date for this role would be the 6th September.


Wage will be considered based on experience, with a minimum of £24,000, plus tips.

If this sounds like it’s a role for you, please email bigbury@oystershack.co.uk with your CV.


Application deadline is the 15th August. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are located in Bigbury, the nearest towns being Kingsbridge and Modbury and we're between the two.

Potter along the tidal road past the Avon Estuary if the tide is right, or meander along the winding Devon roads if the water’s high and you will find The Shack tucked into the valley under a bright orange sail on Stake’s Hill.


If the tide is high you will need to take the B3392 and as you drive into St. Ann’s Chapel take a left by the village shop and follow the signs for The Oyster Shack.  Then continue down the hill until you find us on the left hand side.  If the tide is out, then you can take the tidal road off Timbers roundabout at Aveton Gifford.

Please avoid the Ashford Road where possible, this road is quite narrow throughout!


Just remember to check the tide times here before you drive.
