Jodie Kidd is best known for being a television presenter and one of the most successful models of her generation.
Having been discovered at the age of just 15, she shot into the spotlight, appeared on the cover of Vogue, opened shows for Givenchy and walked for Alexander McQueen's debut runway presentation. As an international model, she travelled the world shooting high-end campaigns.
Jodie is passionate about sustainability and growing her own vegetables and is a keen cook, having been a finalist in Celebrity MasterChef. In 2017, Jodie opened gastropub The Half Moon in Kirdford and the following year it was awarded 2 Rosettes by the AA. Jodie is involved in everything from menu design and creation of dishes, as well as hosting her very own Curry and Quiz night each month. Guests can expect flavour and quality to be at the centre of everything with British produce enhanced by global flavours inspired by Jodie’s travels.
This year, Jodie has been an instrumental driving force in freezing beer duty in the Chancellor’s Autumn 2018 Budget, helping to save thousands of jobs. She is a supporter of the ‘Long Live the Local’ campaign and delivered a petition to Downing Street ahead of the Chancellor’s Budget, calling for a cut in beer duty. Jodie was significant in helping the campaign gather over 116,000 signatures, expressing a nationwide concern that one in ten pubs (12%) could close within five years if beer tax was to increase.
