THE RICK STEIN Group has made the top list of companies to work for.

The company appears at number 55 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies awards.The restaurant group opened a branch in Marlborough three years ago, and staff at the branch are thrilled.

Marlborough general manager Kevin Cole said. "This is great news. We can work some long hours in the hospitality business, so keeping hours down to a maximum of 55 hours a week has been very important to us." Rick is back in Marlborough on March 1 for the sold out five course dinner and wine - 'An Evening With Rick.'
