Restaurant Association Gala Dinner 2023

Date – 28th November 2023

The fifth annual UKH Restaurant Association Gala Dinner took place at The Savoy Hotel in the heart of London, organised by World Young Chef Young Waiter, in association with UKHospitality and in partnership with title sponsors NEFT Vodka and Dojo.

Celebrating Excellence in Food & Wine Service the prestigious event was hosted by President of the Restaurant Association, founder of Nth Degree Club & Chairman of World Young Chef Young Waiter Robert Walton MBE. The Restaurant Association Award for Special Services to Hospitality 2022, designed and sponsored by Fabergé, was presented to John Williams MBE, executive chef of The Ritz.
