Job Description

Our Bar Hosts work in our all-day café bar and venue, the Visitors’ Book Café, and on our food and beverage offering for all shows and events. They’re the first point of contact for visitors to our buildings, delivering an exceptional level of service and contributing to creating a great experience for all our visitors.

In the Visitors Book Café, the Bar Hosts prepare drinks including cocktails and barista coffees, prepare and serve food and help to oversee and support people working with us on work placements. They’re responsible for welcoming visitors to the building, handling visitor enquiries and ticket sales and providing information. Around events, they serve drinks and food to our audiences before, during and after the show, including providing table service and at times acting as waiters or catering assistants for events. The Bar Hosts use our systems to take cash and card payments and will be responsible for looking after stock and keeping the café and bar areas clean and well-presented.
