Here at GBR, we are extremely excited to invite you to a one of a kind celebration of our country’s wonderful culinary tastes on Tuesday 9th July. Our long-standing Executive Head Chef, Nigel Mendham, will be joined for one night only by Michelin-Star chef Tom Aikens for a unique gastronomic collaboration – The Norfolk Boys at GBR. The two chefs will unite forces to honour wonderful British fayre with an exclusive six course tasting menu, influenced by their mutual roots, which we are certain will be a night to remember.
Both Tom and Nigel have strong ties with Norfolk and is the shared
area where their journeys began to become renowned chefs. Nigel was born and

simple dishes his mum would make. His first job was in a Norfolk pub, where he
would serve food and help cook when short-staffed, before moving on to gain his

involved within the wine industry and being introduced early to a love of good
food, deciding to develop his cooking skills by enrolling at the Norwich City College

March is all about the celebration of women here at DUKES Hotel with two very important female centred days taking place this month – International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day 2019. As a female lead hotel, we truly understand the importance of championing women and their achievements. We have dedicated the entirety of March to the ladies in our lives with our aptly named ‘All About the Duchess’ month.
Mothers have such special and important roles in our lives and is only right that we recognise all that they do for us. Mother’s Day 2019 is on the 31st March and is the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ for the sacrifices they make and appreciate the love that they show us. Booking them a treat at DUKES London is the perfect gift and the range of packages available for our ‘All About the Duchess’ month means there is something to suit everybody. As an added bonus, all bookings in March are entered in a draw to win a spa day package.
