On a day made for feeling the love, this London pub donated all its Valentine's takings to charity.

The Drapers Arms in Islington, London has donated all its takings from Valentine's Day to the domestic violence support charity Refuge.

All gross takings from lunch and dinner tables at the gastropub racked up a donation of £4,200 for the charity.

Nick Gibson, landlord of the pub said: “Women should step out into the world feeling genuinely loved by men 365 days of the year. 

“So we will treat all of our takings on Valentine’s Day as a voluntary donation from our customers to a charity organisation that supports women affected by the violence of men.”

The pub sold dishes like its fore-rib of beef, chips & alioli for two to three people; Ox heart, sweet & sour cauliflower, mustard & almonds, and lemon sole, salsify, prawn & saffron cream.

Nick continued: “In some small way I hope the pub is a source of light and part of the fight for love, tolerance and shared humanity.

“At the Drapers we do try and do our bit on an ongoing basis – many other people in this industry do too and do far more.”

Nick is trekking through the Himalayas in March with a group of other chefs to raise a target of £120,000 for the Action Against Hunger charity.

The Drapers Arms also won the 2017 Scotch Egg earlier this month. To see more about the event, watch this.
