What the judges said:

The New Hall team had an ex­cel­lent take on pub­lic per­cep­tions and a deep un­der­stand­ing of how to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing this strong brand with the tri­al­ing of new prod­ucts to cater for de­vel­op­ing tastes. There was a strong link be­tween Visit Es­sex as well as Gar­dens and Gourmet, with con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing vine­yard vis­its.

What the win­ner said:

Hav­ing re­cently taken over the business, this award means so much. It shows what we have achieved in the last few years and our ded­i­cated team have worked very hard. It just makes us very proud to be a part of Es­sex. This award proves all our cus­tomers ap­pre­ci­ate every­thing that we do; we do our best to give every­thing to them and it just shows that they ap­pre­ci­ate it and ac­knowl­edge it.
