Following the Government’s new plan to close establishments at 10pm to combat the virus, the chef, who owns the Hand and Flowers and the Coach in the town, tweeted to his followers about the importance of using local businesses.

In a tweet that was published on October 14, he said: “As the hospitality industry takes a hit, I’d ask you lot to support your local restaurants/bars as much as possible. If you are staying in, @watneysbeer & @RebellionBeerhave a smashing selection.

"If you’re more of a gin person give @MarlowGin a try #shoplocal."

The 47-year-old has done a lot during the pandemic, as he co-launched the Meals for Marlow scheme at the start of lockdown, to help the needy, elderly and vulnerable in the town receive hot meals.
