Jay Rayner talks dining disasters at Leamington's Spa Centre

Leamington Editorial 22nd Apr, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

RESTAURANT critic Jay Rayner will not be mincing words at Leamington’s Spa Centre on May 13.

My Dining Hell will see Jay examine the British nation’s love affair with lousy reviews. As a restaurant critic for the Observer for over 15 years, if there is one thing Jay has learnt it is that his readers delight in reviews of bad restaurants.

An award-winning writer, journalist and broadcaster with a fine collection of floral shirts, Jay has written on everything from crime and politics, through cinema and theatre to the visual arts.

But despite his stint as sex columnist for Cosmopolitan – following in the footsteps of his columnist mother Claire Rayner – he is best known as restaurant critic. He chairs BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet, and is a regular on British television, where he is familiar as a judge on Masterchef and, since 2009, as the resident food experts on The One Show.
