What does the Great British Menu winner get?

Contestants compete for the title of Great British Menu Winner.

A former contestant told The Staff Canteen that while there’s no cash prize, “It’s like having the best PR possible, yes it takes a lot of work, but the rewards are brilliant.”

They added: “I think with something like GBM you have to see the big picture, I’ve spent a lot of time practicing and filming which takes you away from the restaurant, but the increase in business has meant I can hire more now Buy staff and better equipment.

The chefs have the honor of cooking for some of the UK’s biggest names in food and entertainment.

Are participants paid to attend?

Contestants will not be paid for attending the show.

The restaurants they represent have to shell out a budget.

However, the participating restaurants seem more than happy to stick with it as the show offers excellent presentation.
