In Conversation With … Corkage

Aug 10, 2020

In the third episode of our In Conversation With series, GDR CEO Kate Ancketill talks to restaurateurs Marty Grant and Richard Knighting, who run the awarding-winning independent Corkage restaurants in the English city of Bath.


Marty and Richard talk to Kate about the challenges facing restaurants and independent traders in the Covid-era, how they’re diversifying their offer and stretching every penny out of their cost management, and why they believe returning to their pop-up routes to focus on personality, experience and storytelling is the best way to future-proof their locations.
