 Tony Drice was born into a family of hoteliers and followed a career in hospitality as a chef, then moved on to front of house as a waiter / captain and then restaurant manager. Tony was also a Butler for Regent International Hotels, looking after the worlds rich and famous. Tony opened his first restaurant in 1990, and had 2 restaurants operating at one stage. After nearly 40 years in the industry Tony has stepped out of restaurants and into a different path. His vast wealth of knowledge in all things food and service shines through in the appearance and stock available in the store. It is a gourmands treasure trove, with all staff from a hospitality / food background.
