Key figures in the Northern hospitality industry support Northern Restaurant & Bar as it celebrates ten years

Key figures in the Northern hospitality industry have joined with Northern Restaurant & Bar to celebrate ten years of supporting the hospitality industry in the North.  Mal Evans of Mojo in Manchester and Leeds said “If you’re in the bar and restaurant industry in the North then you should be embracing Northern Restaurant & Bar, it is essential for the hospitality industry”.

Mal was joined by chefs Nigel Howarth, Terry Laybourne, Paul Askew, David Gale, Norman Musa and Alison Seagrave, Hilton Manchester Deansgate GM Bernadette Gilligan, sommelier George Bergier, BII NW Chairman Neil France, bar expert Jamie Stephenson and John Robinson from Frederic Robinson.

Andy Clayfield, Event Director, Northern Restaurant & Bar said “Over the past ten years this show has demonstrated the quality of northern hospitality and we are delighted to have seen the likes of Marcus Wareing, Raymond Blanc and Angela Hartnett all support the show. I would like to thank all those who have helped make each show successful and everyone who has supported us.”

Paul Askew, Chef Patron at The London Carriage Works in Liverpool, expresses what the show means to him; “I have been involved with Northern Restaurant & Bar since day one and the last ten years have really shown what the North has to offer. We are different to London and we need to show off our fantastic produce, chefs and hospitality in the most professional and fun way. To me, the show has captured all that is great about the Northern regions and shouted it from the rooftops. Massive congratulations and happy birthday! Here’s to another 20 years of raising the bar and showing the passion of the North!”

The leading names in the business come back to the Northern Restaurant & Bar year after year, because they get the best possible return-more business and bigger profits. Northern Restaurant & Bar will be returning on 1-2 March 2011 at Manchester Central.

Northern Restaurant & Bar will be showcasing the best of the north with more Michelin starred chefs, the best in regional produce, sommeliers, mixologists, cocktail and Tikki competitions! And this is only the tip of what is on offer.

Celebrate ten years of success in hospitality, see new talent and learn from others in the industry. For more details of the show and how to register for free tickets visit
