In late 2019 and with a heavy heart Edith Gunnell chose to go into retirement after 44 years of serving one of the most famous bars in the world.
She longed for the Londoner to continue its tradition and keep the DNA that has made is so successful over the years, so would choose carefully who she would hand the keys over to.
It was not until April 2020, during the lockdown that she realised that the right person was exactly under her nose. The General Manager for the last years, David, declared his interest and there was not a hesitation in Edith to pass on the legacy that the Gunnell family created and sustained for all these years.
David, a Welshman, has the idea of keeping everything the same as before and continuing a history that will never die.
