  • Most Favourite Thing No.1

    To kick off our series on the many foods and designs that make up ‘Our Favourite Things’ it is perhaps no surprise that we begin with the pineapple. When it comes to English hospitality we pride ourselves on our association with both the classic and the quirky. And the pineapple is very much a part of this rich heritage. You only need to look at the Payne & Gunter crest to see how this delicate fruit takes centre stage. From our origins back in Mayfair in 1786, the pineapple has become synonymous with all that we embody. This fruit is considered an age-old symbol of a warm welcome, friendship — and above all — hospitality.
