#071 CVIRUS SPECIAL - Mitch Tonks - Seahorse & Rockfish

Play
Read more

This is a shorter special edition of the podcast looking at how some humans in the hospitality sector are coping with changes as a result of the coronavirus.  

Mitch is an utter gentleman of our industry who has created a small group of restaurants that have an exceptional reputation for being part of the local community, generally in seaside resorts of South West England.  Along with his chairman Will from Hawksmoor, they are a couple of wise brains who really understand the hospitality sector, and operate for the right reasons with strong values and a passion for service.

In this conversation we chat about how events unfolded and when Mitch decided to close his venues, before being told to by the government.  We then focus on quite probably the more challenging aspect of how we re-establish our businesses and how much support may be required to trade again.

We touch on business interruption loans, the job retention scheme and even wether the government could step in as 'an insurer of last resort'.

Typically Mitch ends on a positive note confident that he will rebuild and see us all with business intact on the other side.

#037 Mitch Tonks - Award winning chef, author & TV

Play

This week you meet a champion of the sea and of preparing seafood simply and sustainably. Whether you’ve got one of his cookery books, visited his award-winning Seahorse and Rockfish restaurants or watched him on TV with world class rugby player Matt Dawson, you’ll know that Mitch Tonks is one of the country’s most fervent ambassadors for fish   

You’ll hear just how fervent, when he talks about the planetary benefits of freezing fish; whether prawns should be on or off the menu and what he’s doing to make sure that the rubbish his trawlerman collects from the sea isn’t dumped straight back into the ocean.  

He’s also great on the difference between real hospitality and the stage set version and why the willingness to chat is a must if you want to become a restaurant owner. 

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Mitch, and I'm confident you'll enjoy this weeks conversation.
