The whole Catey experience was overwhelming. It was not just being nominated, nor the fantastic experience of being presented with the Education and Training Catey statue on the night, but it was also all the messages of congratulations that kept coming after the awards evening. To be recognised with a Catey, and to realise that so many people value what you do, is deeply humbling.

Winning the Pub and Bar Catey was fantastic. It is a huge honour to be recognised, and to be in the same company of many great names in the hospitality industry who have previously won a Catey, is incredible. Our bronze Catey sits with pride of place at The Pipe and Glass and is a constant reminder of what can be achieved.
