Great news on two fronts for Whiting & Hammond as they opened the doors of their eighth pub and took home a prestigious industry honour! Gastro won the Business Innovation of the Year Award at the Budweiser Budvar Top 50 Gastro Pubs 2014, a tremendous achievement for the group and a testament to the strength of this magazine.
There’s a new addition to the ever-growing family as they proudly unveil the eighth wonder of Whiting & Hammond – The Kings Head in Bessels Green, Sevenoaks! It’s been a long time coming, but they finally opened the new venue’s doors at the end of March. To find out all about the latest pub’s journey and development, don’t miss the story inside.
First up is an exclusive interview with celebrity chef Michel Roux Jr who spills the beans on a career in television, his Michelin-starred restaurant Le Gavroche, and his return to Shipbourne last year for the Whiting & Hammond Chaser charity dinner. Catch up on all the latest news from the Whiting & Hammond part of the world before checking out some more tantalising trivia with a fresh batch of foodie facts, not to mention a seasonal roundup of produce and ingredients.
Some (hopefully) sunny months lie ahead, so there are plenty of outdoorsy features to get you inspired. Join in as we head out and about to some of the best attractions surrounding the eight pubs. Plus, if you’d like a complimentary dinner and a well deserved pamper, you won’t want to miss the chance to win a delicious meal for four at one of the venues, accompanied by an exclusive hair and beauty package at The Gallery in Tunbridge Wells!
