Every summer we run a competition across all of our pubs to crown creators of the best dishes. Each pub enters a junior chef and front of house partnership to represent them in our company wide competition to develop the best starter, main and pudding.
At the grand finals in September all the dishes are judged against each other and the supreme champion is crowned. The winning team enjoy the glory, the admiration and undoubtedly the accusations of bias and double-dealing from all their peers and they also receive a trophy, a case or two of something quaffable to celebrate their success with the rest of their team and a great prize dining experience in somewhere very 'posh and foodie', along with all the other finalists.
As doting customers, we benefit from the fruits of their labours when the delicious dishes are added to their menus.
