A COTSWOLD pub owner is featuring on the BBC Two programme, Great British Menu next week.

Emily Watkins, who runs the Kingham Plough, near Chipping Norton, is representing the south west region with her week of programmes airing fromMonday at 7.30pm.

She will be fighting it out against chefs Dominic Chapman and Josh Eggleton in her category for the chance to cook at a huge banquet marking the 70th anniversary of D Day.

The top two will be put through to the Friday regional final and prepare their menus again for the regular judges Prue Leith, Matthew Fort and Oliver Peyton along with a special guest judge.

This year the chefs have to produce 21st century dishes which evoke the wartime spirit of the generation who fought for the country as well as honour the bravery shown throughout the Second World War.
