The UK’s Best Family Recipe Winner


We launched a nationwide competition earlier in the year to find the UK’s best family recipe. We went on the hunt for a wholesome family favourite dish that always gets everyone around the dinner table.

Our exclusive competition, Seasoned With Love, was tasked with finding the best family recipe and the winning dish was to be created and added to our Autumn Winter menu…


Chef & Brewer - Rum Bread Butter Pudding

Standout Dish

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that Lyn Foxall was awarded the coveted title for her culinary creation – Lyn’s Bread & Butter Pudding is a luxurious desert served with a bourbon butterscotch sauce and custard.

Winning Words

As well as receiving a £500 cash prize, her sumptuous dessert has also been added to our new Autumn menu and is available in all of our pubs.

Lyn said: “My Mom is a fabulous cook and inspired me to get into the kitchen from a young age, so when I saw the competition to find the UK’s best family recipe the opportunity was just too good to miss.

“My rum bread and butter pudding was one of the first dishes I learnt to make when I was 15, and I still enjoy making it just as much today – it’s a firm family favourite!

“I’m absolutely thrilled that the dish has been added to the Chef & Brewer menu. I hope that other guests enjoy it just as much as I do!”

Family Moments

Manuela Tanase, general manager at the Running Horse Inn, Lyn’s local Chef & Brewer said: “Meal times are all about sharing family moments, so we thought it would be a great idea to turn to our guests for their favourite family recipes.

“Lyn’s bread and butter pudding is absolutely delicious – we’re sure it’s going to be a crowd pleaser for our guests, particularly those with a sweet tooth!

Lyn headed to The Running Horse Inn with her family for an exclusive ‘first taste’ of the dish and we can’t wait for you to visit your local Chef & Brewer and enjoy the pudding for yourself. We’re confident you’re going to love it!
