Two Directors from Stockport based Robinsons Brewery have been named in the latest Kuits NRB Top 50 names of the most important movers and shakers in the restaurant and bar world.
Oliver Robinson, managing director of the brewing division and William Robinson, managing director of the pub division, have both been included in the latest listing.
The list was revealed at the Northern Restaurant and Bar show, which took place at Manchester Central earlier this week.
Steve Pilling, co-owner of the Damson Group and who is soon to re-open the Produce Hall in Stockport’s Market Place, received a Special Achievement Award.
Thom Hetherington, CEO of organisers Holden Media, said:
“It’s been another strong year for the north’s leading operators, driving the industry forward with a balance of expansion, innovation and consolidation.
“Recent data from CGA show that the restaurant and bar scene in the major northern cities is far outperforming London, and I think that a combination of lower costs and a better lifestyle mean more and more operators are choosing to build their businesses in the north.”
The three special achievement awards were presented to Chris Hill of New World Trading Company, John Gyngell & Christian Townsley from North Brew Co and Nisha Katona of Mowlgi Street Food.
