A business that works for Crail

We want to build something Crail can be proud of and have a business that provides great food and great employment opportunities to the community all year round.

We’ll be starting the search soon for local suppliers who can provide us with top quality ingredients and drinks, that showcase the amazing produce that the East Neuk, Fife and Scotland has to offer.

We’ll also be posting our first recruitment adverts, on this site and elsewhere, initially for a general manager and a head chef. We’re expecting both to take a leading role in shaping what we want The Shoregate to be and, over time, to build up a substantial share in the business.

We’ll also be advertising in the summer, once we have a firmer opening date, for the team to work in the restaurant, bar and kitchen. We want to provide flexible, well-paid job opportunities and ultimately a ‘John Lewis’ style model where long-term staff members receive business-related bonuses and a stake in our success.
