HAIRY BIKERS TAKE ON LOCAL CHEF IN TV COOKING CHALLENGE

The Hairy Bikers came to Ross-on-Wye on Tuesday to film part of their new television series, The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain, which is to be screened on BBC2 in the late Summer. We met the famous duo during a brief break from filming at the Bridge at Wilton, where they had challenged chef James Arbourne to a cook off. Simon and David had presented hotel proprietors Jane and Mike Pritchard with their 'Restaurant of the Year' award at the Flavours of Herefordshire awards last October and it was decided that there was no better venue for their Herefordshire episode than The Bridge.

John Bonny, Associate Producer happily talked to us about the series and why The Bridge was chosen for the new series. He told us that everybody they had spoken to had recommended the Bridge for its excellent food with the emphasis on using locally produced ingredients. (James insists on it.) You can hear more of what the new series is about and why the Bridge was the chosen venue in the recorded interview with John, which can be found below the photograph.

Before dashing off to the kitchen to prepare their secret ingredients for the cook off, the Hairy Bikers happily posed for a photograph with a delighted Jane and Mike in their beautiful riverside garden.

The application is quite safe to allow in this instance - it is only trying to open Windows Media Player (or whichever player you have set as your default mp3 player).
