Judging for the 'Front of House' award in our Adams Restaurant

The final of the Nottingham Restaurant & Bar Awards’ (NR&BA) Best Young Talent, Front of House Award, took place at our Adams Restaurant last month (21st November), with Chris Stamp (Adams Restaurant Commercial Lead/ Hospitality Lecturer) as one of the guest judges.

Now in its sec­ond year, the NR&BA are a cel­e­bra­tion of the superb food and drink indus­try the city and the coun­ty has to offer. The award is designed to encour­age and inspire peo­ple with­in Not­ting­ham’s hos­pi­tal­i­ty indus­try and to pro­file front-of-house as a well-respect­ed profession. 

Numer­ous appli­ca­tions were received from venues across the city and coun­ty which were even­tu­al­ly whit­tled down to a final four. They were: Ellie Wrench from The Cross Keys at Epper­stone, Tyra With­all from La Rock Restau­rant in San­di­acre, Maria Cas­tro Dominguez and Matthew Quayle both of Bar Iberico.

It was a real plea­sure to be one of the judges of the com­pe­ti­tion and great to wit­ness first-hand, the fan­tas­tic tal­ent we have in the local hos­pi­tal­i­ty and cater­ing indus­try. It’s so impor­tant that com­pe­ti­tions like this exist, to help raise the pro­file and shine a spot­light on the indus­try, and the high-qual­i­ty food and drink estab­lish­ments we have here in Not­ting­hamshire, and of course the hard­work­ing staff who make them such a success.
