Bristol Young Guns unit for Hospitality Action

The award-winning Josh Eggleton, Elliott Lidstone and Jan Ostle will join forces this November for an unforgettable dining experience to raise funds for industry charity Hospitality Action. Taking place on Monday 11th November the trio of pioneering Bristol talent will take to the helm at Clevedon Hall for an exclusive dinner to celebrate the Bristol Young Guns: three award-winning chefs at the forefront of the South West food scene.

Elliott Lidstone, Chef Owner of BOX-E will prepare the evening’s starter of crispy polenta, wild mushrooms and pickled cauliflower. Elliot’s esteemed carer includes six years at L’Ortolan where he helped to retain the restaurant’s Michelin star before moving on to take the lead at the Empress in London where he was awarded 2 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand.

Jan Ostle, Head Chef and Owner of Wilsons will delight guests with a main course of pheasant. Jan has worked as a chef since the age of 18, working in some of the country’s most competitive kitchens including The Square, The Hand & Flowers and Royal Hospital Road.

Josh Eggleton, Owner and Chef Patron of The Pony & Trap will close the evening with a mouth-watering bread and butter sharing pudding, glazed with honey and served with a salad of orchard seasonal fruit and cultured cream. For three consecutive years Josh has appeared on the BBC’s Great British Menu where he won the regional stages whilst The Pony & Trap has been named as the sixth best gastropub on the Estrella Top 50 Gastropubs list.

Josh says: “I’m delighted to be part of an exciting team putting Bristol on the map and raising the profile of Hospitality Action in the area. The three of us have differing culinary styles but are all united in our commitment to elevating seasonal and local ingredients to the highest level. We’re also proud of our industry and our city as an amazing place to work. I’m honoured to help promote Hospitality Action in the South West.”

Taking place at the stunning Victorian mansion house of Clevedon Hall, guests will enjoy a welcome drinks and canapé reception followed by the exquisite three course meal, half a bottle of wine per person kindly donated by VinoSA and the chance to win some fabulous prizes in the auction and prize draw. The funds raised will go towards helping those most in need across UK hospitality industry this autumn and is the perfect outing for local foodies, ideal for networking or a special treat, as well as a chance to show your support for those in the hospitality industry. Tickets are priced at £95 per person or £900 for a table of 10. Clevedon Hall is offering special rates for guests for the Monday night. Further details will be sent to you upon booking.
