During the lunch Jacobs was presented with an honorary Fellowship of the Tourism Society by its president, Lord Thurso MP.
Commenting on receiving the honour, Jacobs said: "I am honoured and encouraged that in the short period of time I have owned Caterer and Hotelkeeper that my efforts have been rewarded and recognised in this way."
Speaking about the event, Sandra Matthews-Marsh, chairman of the Tourism Society, said: "It was a really inspiring lunch and guest of honour, as well as a super venue and company."
