WHAT THE WINNER SAID:
We are completely over the moon. We try to be as welcoming as we can and to run an efficient restaurant for our customers. We provide good local produce and we are very pleased to win this award. Thank you, we are really proud for the recognition and are looking forward to putting the award in the restaurant.
WHAT THE JUDGE SAID:
This restaurant we couldn’t fault, we received a professional, yet warm and friendly welcome and all the staff were knowledgeable and efficient explaining the dishes on their extensive menu. The food was colourful, fantastically presented and tasted sublime. The ambiance created by the exquisite decor made for an extremely special evening. The addition of acoustic live music was the final master stoke! Due to personal circumstances, guests from Mimosa Restaurant had to leave the awards and so their trophy was collected by Mike Porter, accompanied here by sponsor Debbie Driver from Harveys Garden Buildings. Inset is the team at Mimosa restaurant with the trophy.
