Welcome to Day 2, Session 2 of the Interpreting Wine Hospitality Summit 2020. We continue with restaurants and travel to Heritage Restaurant West Sussex to speak with Chef-Owner Matt Gillan and General Manager Hannah Bamford. We hear origin stories from the pair and how they came to be working together in setting up the restaurant. They take us inside the story of opening the restaurant in August 2019, giving us a virtual tour of front of house and the kitchen. They talk about the immediate reaction in March 2020, when it became apparent the restaurant would have to close. We discuss keeping their customers engaged during lockdown, while being mindful that their regulars were unable to visit. The pair finish by looking ahead, beyond the immediate situation and talk to their future ambitions.
