Stonor Park is an historic, privately owned stately home and garden open to the public located north of Henley-on-Thames in South Oxfordshire. Stonor has been the residence of the Stonor Family for over 850 years making it one of the oldest family homes still lived in today. The earliest parts of the house date from the 12th Century.

The house contains a unique collection of family treasures collected over the centuries, including family portraits, old masters, furniture and sculptures as well as one of the oldest family archives in Great Britain. In addition to opening the house to the public, the Stonors have recently built an exciting adventure playground for children in the grounds, and they are hosting a wide range of events this year including the Bentley Summer Concours, The Henley Country Craft Show, Gifford Circus and the Stonor Food Festival.  


 We are looking for people to work in our Pantry Cafe and Visitor Centre.  The role will involve serving customers, using the till and card machine, serving food and hot drinks, clearing and cleaning tables and other general assistance to visitors.

We are looking for people with good communication skills.  Experience is not necessary, although previous experience in a food preparation area or cafe setting is beneficial.  All necessary training will be given.

You need to be available to work primarily weekends and school holidays, although there are some opportunities to work during the week.  Ideally we are looking for people to work one or two weekend days per month, and more during school holidays.

Applicants must be over 16.  Hourly rate paid.

As we are a remote location you must have access to a car, or be able to be dropped off/collected from work as there is no public transport here.
