Win free meals at award-winning pubs

Rupert and Joanna Clevely are the husband-and-wife team behind Geronimo Inns, a company which is dedicated to the traditional idea of the pub being the centre of a thriving local community, while offering imaginative, wide-ranging menus and extensive wine lists.

The Duke of Cambridge, Battersea (right) occupies an elegant Victorian building and is winner of The Evening Standard 1998 Pub of the Year Award. Along the same lines are The Queens, Regents Park Rd, NW1 and the Coat and Badge, Putney, opening at the end of the month. The Crown, which opened last month in Chelsea, looks destined for similar success.

The Information has three meals for two (to the value of pounds 25 each prize) to give away for use at any of these four pubs. For a chance to win one, please send your name, address and daytime phone no on a postcard, by 30 Oct, to: Independent/ Geronimo Inns, c/o Jori White Public Relations Ltd, 59 Brewer St, London W1R 3FD.
