Join sporting legends and culinary greats for an evening of rugby banter and phenomenal food at Deer Park Country House Hotel near Honiton

Hospitality Action

Reckon you can tackle four courses from seven of the country’s top chefs for charity? It’s worth a try if you can score a ticket to Hospitality Action’s Rugby Legends Dinner on April 9.

Hosted by Deer Park Country House Hotel and sponsored by Sharp’s Brewery, the fundraising dinner promises a night of fine dining and tales from the field. A scrum of South West chefs including Paul Ainsworth, Dominic Chapman, Josh Eggleton, Jude Kereama, Nathan Outlaw, Guy Owen and Michael Wignall are set to cook a game-changing four course feast, with wines donated by Enotria.

While the team of culinary heavyweights get to work in the kitchen, former England player and pundit David Flatman, alongside fellow rugby legends Phil Vickery, Jeremy Guscott and Matt Powell, will entertain guests.

Tickets start at just £80, with all profits going towards Hospitality Action’s vital work. Established in 1837, the charity offers assistance to those in crisis who work or have worked in the hospitality industry. Grab one of the final tickets here.
