What’s your favourite restaurant?Curry Corner is the restaurant that gets most of my custom. But restaurants I would most like to return to include Ripples Café at the Sydney Olympic swimming pool from which the views are stunning, Quay 4 in Cape Town where the fish is superb and The Brew House in Whistler where, quite frankly, anything would taste good after a hard day’s skiing. What’s the most you’ve ever spent on dinner for two? More than £400 at La Pergola restaurant in Rome – it has more than 50 types of water. What’s your favourite band? Green Day, although my iPod is on permanent shuffle mode. What’s your favourite tipple? Goff’s Jouster, a bitter brewed locally in Winchcombe. Do you have any hobbies and interests? I play water polo although my team has been trying to persuade me to retire for a few years. I also help coach and referee my elder son’s mini-rugby team.
