National Restaurateurs' Dinner

NRD Logo

The National Restaurateurs’ Dinner (NRD) is one of the UK hospitality sector’s premier annual fundraising events.

The dinner is a joint initiative by three of the industry’s most prominent and respected organisations:  The Academy of Food and Wine Service; The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts; and The Restaurant Association. Click here for details of the organisations. Each year we combine efforts to organise the NRD and to make it a memorable annual celebration.

In its 29th year, the dinner will be  held on 5th April 2016 at The Dorchester.

These vital funds help maintain the profile and esteem of the industry, both front and back of house, through training and educational programmes.  Besides its fundraising, the evening also provides an opportunity for the industry to come together and enjoy the company of old, and new friends.

In its Silver Jubilee year the NRD announced a new patrons’ scheme, whereby several high profile members of the industry were invited to become patrons of the National Restaurateurs’ Dinner.

Our first patrons include Roy Ackerman, Sir Rocco Forte, Julia Hands, Mike Sunley, Ramon Pajares and Richard Shepherd, and the committee would like to invite you to join this esteemed group.

We wouldn’t have been able to undertake the work we do to support the industry if it were not for the support of people like yourself attending the dinner, becoming patrons, sponsoring the event and offering auction prizes. There are many opportunities to become involved in this auspicious occasion, both as an individual or as a business. So if you’d like to support three of the industry’s most respected organisations then check out the various links on the menu panel. We’d love to hear from you.
