In 2016 we added the Front of House category. In 2017 @kieranmonteiro - owner of @bomarestaurants and front of house extraordinaire wowed judges who felt he had hospitality pumping through his veins. Boma has just opened their fourth venue; The Tunnel Bar in Putney. Head down for great food, drink, music and of course... a great experience.🍴
