“We are delighted that restaurants up and down the country have got behind Social Sunday this year, ensuring that we can support more people and help transform their lives.”

On Sunday July 1 2018, renowned chef Sat Bains, of two Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham, will join chef Niall Keating, in his Michelin-starred restaurant, The Dining Room, at Whatley Manor in the Cotswolds, to create a spectacular eight-course dinner in aid of Hospitality Action’s ‘Social Sunday’.

Started by Jason Atherton three years ago, ‘Social Sunday’ was created to unite the UK’s restaurant community and help transform the lives of hospitality workers who find themselves in crisis. This year, the concept is being taken nationwide, asking chefs and restaurateurs to join together on one day and support their industry. Other participants include chefs such as Tom Kerridge and Gary Usher.

Niall and Sat will present four courses each that represent their individual styles, as well as showcasing seasonal and local ingredients. Having trained under Sat over five years ago, Niall said of the event: “I am thrilled to be able to cook alongside one of the most influential chefs in my career, and what makes it even more of an honour is that we will be collaborating for such a special charity with Hospitality Action.”

Similarly Sat commented: “While we are absolutely inundated with guest chef requests, we say yes to only a select few, as our focus must always be on the restaurant. However, I could not turn down the opportunity of working alongside Niall once again - an exciting and hugely talented chef, who worked so diligently at Restaurant Sat Bains during his formative years - while also supporting Jason’s brilliant dream of taking Social Sunday nationally.”

He added: “My Head Chef John Freeman and I are really excited about the prospect of cooking at Whatley Manor, where we know we will love being shoulder to shoulder with Niall again and we will have the unique opportunity of working closely with Sue Williams, a hotelier we greatly admire. But, of course, the driving factor for us all is to support the critical work that the team at Hospitality Action does so graciously.”

Mark Lewis, Chief Executive of Hospitality Action, stated: “We are delighted that restaurants up and down the country have got behind Social Sunday this year, ensuring that we can support more people and help transform their lives, and we hope that fabulous collaborations, such as Sat’s and Niall’s, will inspire those working in the industry to take part in Social Sunday as an annual event.”

Tickets are £300 per person and include an eight-course dinner and wine pairing (£220 without wine).

Bookings are available via the Whatley Manor website or by phone, 01666 822888. Bedrooms are also available to guests who wish to stay, from £199 per night.
