Huw Gott Is the co-founder of Hawksmoor, which first opened in 2006 and has grown to become one of the UK’s most respected restaurant groups.
They have a reputation for being the best employers in the industry, being the only hospitality company to have appeared in the Annual Sunday Times Best Places to Work list for each of the last 9 years.
They’re also a founding member of the Sustainable Restaurants Association and have raised over £1.5 million pounds for charity. And they’ve pulled off the difficult trick of remaining a critics favourite 15 years after first opening and Jay Rayner has named them one of his favourite restaurants of the last 10 years.
Huw Is a legend in the industry and we talk about his journey with Hawksmoor. How after 3 failed attempts, him and Will gambled everything on their 4th venture; Hawksmoor. We hear Huw's take on what makes Hawksmoor special, the challenges involved in their journey and reflections on their newest venture; Hawksmoor New York.
