Hotel where Jeremy Clarkson punched producer is holding commemorative night
Simonstone Hall Hotel where Jeremy Clarkson notoriously punched Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon in 2015 is commemorating the anniversary with a steak night.
The venue in Hawes, North Yorkshire is advertising the event on social media to mark five years since Clarkson flew off the handle – over a steak.
69 people have already shown interest in the event that is scheduled for March 4.
Drumming up business, the picturesque venue told punters on Facebook : "Celebrate the 5 year(!!) anniversary of the 'JEREMY CLARKSON SAGA' in the Simonstone Hall Bar, with our special 'STEAK NIGHT' event, in the very venue of the Clarkson/Top Gear demise!"
Diners can enjoy live music and can gobble up two steaks and a bottle of red wine for £49.
Five years ago Clarkson reportedly flew into a rage after being told he could not order a sirloin steak after a day of filming, calling Mr Tymon a "lazy, Irish c***" during a confrontation at a hotel in North Yorkshire – which led to him being axed by the BBC.
Eleven-months after the altercation Clarkson issued an apology to the Tymon after settling a £100,000 racial discrimination and personal injury claim.
Oisin launched the action against Clarkson and the BBC after the presenter gave him a bloody lip in a bust-up.
In an apology issued through the law firm, Clarkson said: "I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath.
"I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault.
"I would also like to make it clear that the abuse he has suffered since the incident is unwarranted and I am sorry too that he has had to go through that.
"I am pleased that this matter is now resolved. Oisin was always a creatively exciting part of Top Gear and I wish him every success with his future projects."
No details of the settlement were given, but it is understood to be in excess of £100,000. Clarkson and the BBC both contributed.
