Winner: Robert Pearce, Orsett Hall
WHAT THE WINNER SAID:
It feels amazing to win this award and it will hopefully help promote the restaurant’s recently new menu. It is all down to team effort, not just I, and we all work really hard. This will help promote what we do already and hopefully people can come and try our new menu. Thank you.
WHAT THE JUDGE SAID:
Once again, this was a very difficult category to judge. However, there can only be one winner and that is Robert Pearce. Robert produced some first class food, full of flavour and well presented. The taste of the food lingered long in the mouth and it truly was an enjoyable experience.
