A PR company that always get it right. They manage that rare duality of answering both the requirements of the clients they represent and the needs of journalists. I also know that they provide invaluable strategic advice to their clients. They understand the food and drink landscape in the UK and the bar and restaurant scene in London. The team has an infectiously lively spirit and it’s just one of the reasons why some of Britain's top food businesses are queuing up to hire them.WILLIAM SITWELL, RESTAURANT CRITIC AND BROADCASTER
Antony has a natural and innate understanding of what makes the hospitality business tick and that translates into dynamic, personal and effective PR management and successful marketing.Henry Harris, Harcourt Inns
