At Hungry Horse, we’re all about helping our guests to sit back, relax and share great times with their friends and family. We want our guests to feel right at home with us - and not have to worry about cooking for themselves or doing the washing up either. It’s the perfect place to come and watch the footy too with our big screens and brilliantly priced pints! 

Our huge menus are bursting with choice, unbelievably great value and generous meals – seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And there really is something for all the family! We also have a great range of drinks, something for everyone, beer at great prices, Wine Wednesdays and the shots and bombs are always on ice for the weekend. We have grown to over 270 sites in the UK, and proud to serve in all corners of the country. 

As an Apprentice Chef you don’t need to have tons of experience in a kitchen, though it can help. We’ll teach you everything you need… All you need is a willingness to learn, a genuine love for all things food and the passion to create amazing dishes.

  • Friends and Family discount at Greene King managed pubs  
  • Discounts off high-street retail brands  
  • Access to our Employee Assistance Programme  
  • Enrolment into the company pension scheme (if eligible) 
  • Access to Wagestream - providing a variety of financial tools to support money management   
  • Up to 28 days holiday 

What your apprenticeship includes: 

  • A mixture of face to face and skype/phone catch ups every 4 - 6 weeks
