Our winner offered a very wide selection of tempting products including vegetables, fruit, cheeses, meat, fish and even wine, in fact everything you could need was available in one place for a locally-sourced dinner. The staff were also all very knowledgeable about the products available.

I feel incredibly proud. This makes all our hard work worthwhile. It is just a fantastic recognition for all the staff and all of our customers. The award gives our business a good boost.
