DIARY: Sholto puts lunching expertise to good use in his second career

Being head of advertising for BT must be one of the most-lunched jobs in Britain. Future incumbents will have to go some to match the lunching stamina of Robert Bean, but Sholto Douglas-Home is keeping his end up. Who better then to become a restaurant critic?

Being head of advertising for BT must be one of the most-lunched jobs in

Britain. Future incumbents will have to go some to match the lunching

stamina of Robert Bean, but Sholto Douglas-Home is keeping his end up.

Who better then to become a restaurant critic?



Sholto’s been sending questionnaires to people likely to have visited

enough eateries to take part in the Zagat Survey, ‘one of the best-

selling restaurant guides in North America’ (it says here), which is

compiled from customer opinion.



Why he sent one to the Diary’s editor, who scarcely gets beyond Pret a

Manger, is a mystery, but it explains why Sholto doesn’t listen to your

schmooze in the Ivy - he really is studying the menu. That’s his excuse,

and we’re going to borrow it.
