A HAMPSHIRE chef battling to win a Parliamentary pub competition has missed out on the top prize. Ryan Lamb, of the Tally Ho in Broughton, had been nominated for Parliamentary Pub Chef of the Year by Romsey and Southampton North MP, Caroline Nokes. Ryan was one of only four pub chefs who made it through to the final stage, and although that ranked him as the top pub chef in the south, he missed out on the overall award. Ryan said: "This experience has been exciting, motivating and humbling. "To know that the hard work and passion that pub chefs put into their work every day is being recognised nationally and that is incredibly rewarding." The winner of the award was won by Kevin MacLean of the Rat Inn, near Hexham. MP for Romsey and Southampton North, Caroline Nokes, said: "It was lovely to welcome Ryan and his wife Kerry to Parliament on Wednesday and I am enormously proud that he has been recognised as one of the top four pub chefs in the UK. "While he may have missed … [Read more...] about Pub chef misses out on top prize in Parliament cook-off

Something or the other is always grabbing eyeballs online and currently, the internet is flipping out over a curious case of the "sinister and unjustifiable "£8 fish n chips". It all started with a restaurant-goer's poor feedback, where she complained about the pricing of what she called a "small fish and chips". In her 2-star review, Debbie Davies praised the Merseyside eatery, Oxton Bar and Kitchen but moaned about the portion of her meal as compared to the price. "Lovely food and staff are amazing but I cannot see how you justify your prices, small fish and chips £8 fish plus and it was small?" she wrote challenging the restaurant to defend their pricing. What followed next was a savage response from the OBK's side, which had their loyal followers singing their praises. "Ok Debbie. Where do I begin?" came the sassy reply from the restaurant management. "Out of that £8, our nasty government is charging you 20% vat which we collect by law on their behalf, so we're left … [Read more...] about UK restaurant savagely trolls customer over 2-star review: ‘F*****g brilliant’
