A Shropshire publican has this week announced a unique partnership with a Telford based manufacturer of Iconic Cookers.

AGA cookers who have been manufacturing their iconic cookers in Shropshire since 1929 have become the ‘must have’ for many a domestic cook, and fashionistas, as well as more professional bakers and Chefs around the UK – and across the World.

Adam Giles of Ye Old Punch Bowl just outside Bridgnorth, was invited by industry newspaper the ‘Morning Advertiser’ to attend their ‘MA300’ of industry leaders, to attend their event held at the prestigious Emirates Stadium in London where Adam announced his partnership with Telford-based AGA, that means an innovative AGA Total Control cooker will take centre stage at his award winning carvery, allowing guests to experience their meals being cooked and served by the Punch Bowl Team.

“We’re so excited about this partnership with AGA,’ he adds. “I decided around 10 years ago that it would be a good idea to cook and serve our carvery food in front of our guests and now that dream is about to become a reality when we undergo an extensive refurbishment in January to install our AGA Total Control Cooker in the pub to serve our carveries from early February.’

“I believe it will transform our business and bring AGA cookers to a whole new audience. I am confident diners will love our nostalgic AGA Classics Menu and carvery specials, which will be made up of traditional dishes with a twist; proper comfort food, all from the AGA Total Control cooker.

“I was brought up with an AGA cooker at my family home in Worcestershire and it was always the focal point of our activities. I come from a family of pub owners and passionate cooks and we would spend hours in the kitchen, creating new dishes and tasting what we had made.”

David Simpson, AGA Commercial Business Development Manager added “We are very pleased to be working with Adam and Nostalgia Inns, and delighted that Adam has joined our AGA Home Ambassador Programme. All over the UK you will hear people say ‘My family loves our AGA’, so we are very excited to have an AGA as the centre piece of the live carvery in the award winning Punchbowl Inn”.
