“What an unbelievably fantastic evening! It was so good to be able to celebrate alongside our industry friends in the flesh and not via a screen.

We were astounded to be nominated for a total of nine awards and so incredibly happy to win four of them! I was in the bar until 4am as I didn’t want the evening to end!” commented Claire Williams, co-owner of Paper Salad.

“The day after the night/morning before is always a sore one! We had such a good night thank you; 12 members of staff; Henries virgins & Henries veterans…each had a ball.
