Ruth Hansom Named Newcomer of the Year in 50 Best Gastropubs Awards

William Reed’s 50 Best Gastropub Awards is gaining ground as a genuine list of contenders for the best of British pub food. It demonstrates how many top chefs have put their hat into the pub grub ring. From Tom Kerridge to Stephen Harris and even Heston Blumenthal the pub and its food is a national obsession.

We are particularly excited to see Ruth Hansom and The Princess of Shoreditch in London recognised with a special award for Newcomer of the Year 2022 at the 50 Best Gastropubs Awards.

Ruth has worked with students at The Chefs’ Forum Academy at West London College and has proven herself to be very popular with the students who enjoy her ability to cook and teach with simplicity and empathy.

“I’m really happy for Ruth,” said Catherine Farinha. “She is a joy to work with and her food at the Princess is outstanding. She throughly deserves the recognition as she did when she won Great British Menu and she is a true advocate of how female chefs can climb the culinary ladder. She is definitely one to watch.”
