I am delighted that Gordon made it to the Pub Chef of the year final and it was great to see him in Westminster. Gordon’s culinary skills, the Brit pub atmosphere along with the fine wines and great beers make it an absolute must. As my local pub I was pleased to nominate Gordon because both he and the Brit Pub deserves the recognition.
