Pub Chain Is On The Hunt For A Sunday Roast Tester

Pub Chain Is On The Hunt For A Sunday Roast Tester

A pub chain is looking for a roast dinner tester - and I think I've finally found my calling in life.

The Botanist is on the hunt for a 'pro-tato tester' to make sure its Sunday roasts are up to scratch by tucking in and writing a review - simple, eh?

The Botanist has created the role to get some feedback on its new 'family-style' sharing roasts - where diners can choose from roast sirloin of beef, roast chicken, pot roast lamb shoulder, slow roast glazed pork belly or a celeriac mushroom and pearl barley wellington all served up with a Yorkshire pudding, alongside sharing boards of maple glazed carrots, signature roast potatoes, minted greens, and jugs of gravy.

And if that's not quite enough food for you - the tester will also be tasked with trialling four different sides - Shorrocks Lancashire cauliflower cheese with parmesan crumb; creamed cabbage with smoked bacon; pork, sage and onion stuffing balls with sour cherries and pigs in blankets in cranberry glaze.

The lucky candidate will be invited out to a tasting with up five guests where they'll tuck into the free scran before writing a 500 word review or a minute-long video that can be shared on social media.

As well as a free meal for six, the roast tester will be given a whopping £500.

Executive chef James Scott said: "One thing we've definitely missed over the last year is sitting down and sharing a roast with our nearest and dearest. Our latest Botanist roast menu is designed with those moments in mind. I'm hoping the Pro-tato Tester can help us ensure our roast is always worth sharing.


"We actively collect reviews from every plate served through our short end-of-meal survey via our Yumpingo tablets, so this position is a natural extension of how important feedback is for us in making sure every Roast is worth sharing."

If you want to apply you can do so here - to be in with a chance, you'll need to let The Botanist know why you'd make the 'perfect pro-tato tester' in 500 words or fewer.

Applications close on 12 September, so if you reckon this is a bit of you don't hang around.
