The National Restaurateurs’ Dinner (NRD) is one of the UK hospitality sector’s premier annual fund-raising events.
The dinner is a joint initiative by three of the industry’s most prominent and respected organisations:
Each year we combine efforts to organise the NRD and to make it a memorable annual celebration.
This year, its 27th, the dinner will be held on 8th April at The Dorchester. Last year’s event, held at The Savoy was a total sell-out and we raised over £45,000 on the night from the auction and raffle ticket sales. this year, with your help and generosity, we can do better!
These vital funds help maintain the profile and esteem of the industry, both front and back of house, through training and educational programmes. Besides its fund-raising, the evening also provides an opportunity for the industry to come together and enjoy the company of old, and new friends.
