Stephen and Jo are delighted that the Hardwick has yet again been voted into the top 25 restaurants at the National Restaurant Awards. The Awards, now in their 7th year, recognise the top 100 places to eat in the UK, as voted for by a panel of over 150 chefs, restaurateurs, food writers and critics. The Hardwick, voted in 23rd place, continues to hold its own with London and other city establishments.
Stephen and Jo would also like to congratulate The Walnut Tree, voted best Restaurant in Wales and 14th place.
Back in the 1990's there was a ‘must do’ on the London scene and that was to get a table booked at Oliver Peyton's Coast, in Albemarle Street, Mayfair.
A veritable line up of culinary stars graced both front and back of house, including chefs Jason Atherton, Hywel Jones, Stephen Terry, Ben Tish and Mark Sargeant. While fashionability may change and times move on, class, as they say is Permanent.
Today each of the chefs run their own successful endeavours across the UK and beyond. After a small amount of goading, on the 4th of this coming July, they have decided to re-live those heady days right here at the Hardwick and each chef will create a ‘signature’ dish reminiscent of their Coast days to make a one off five course evening dinner like no other. There will be a number of special guests including Mr Coast himself - Oliver Peyton.
Miss this evening at your peril, at £125 per person we expect places to fill very, very quickly. Call to book now 01873 854220
Date: July 4th 2014 | Venue: The Hardwick, Abergavenny.
Wine on the evening will be a selection from Fine Wines Direct in Cardiff
Stephen hosted a six course gala dinner which took place on Friday evening to raise money for the charity Ty Hapus, which helps young sufferers with early onset dementia. Each chef cooked a course accompanied by wines provided by Nigel O'Sullivan of Fine Wines Direct.
The chefs included Josh Eggleton - Chef owner The Pony & Trap, Ben Tish - Executive Chef Salt Yard Group, Dominic Chapman - Head Chef The Royal Oak, Tom Kerridge - Chef Owner The Hand & Flowers, James Mackenzie - Chef Owner The Pipe and Glass and of course not forgetting Stephen!
The evening was a complete success and the money that has been raised from the event will no doubt go a long way to help with funding for the charity.
Stephen was delighted to receive an Honorary Fellowship from Cardiff Metropolitan University in their Summer Awards Ceremony 2013.
The conferment of Honorary Fellowships is an established part of Cardiff Metropolitan University Awards Ceremonies which allows the University to honour persons who have given outstanding and distinguished service relevant to the activities of Cardiff Metropolitan University and / or to the community at large.
