Friendly staff help serve up a vic­tory

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY ALBUM -

CAFE Belge has been crowned south and east Kent’s restau­rant of the year.

The restau­rant, in St Dun­stan’s, Can­ter­bury, was voted into the top three by read­ers of the Kent Mes­sen­ger Group’s Tasty mag­a­zine and then im­pressed the judges with its wide menu and pro­fes­sional and friendly staff.

Read­ers short­listed Cafe Belge, the Wheel at West­well, near Ash­ford, and The Wool­pack at Brook­land on Rom­ney Marsh.

“Those who voted set us a re­ally dif­fi­cult task,” said a spokesman for the judges.

“The fi­nal­ists were all very dif­fer­ent and all ex­celled at what they did.

“The Wool­pack is a fan­tas­tic old pub, re­ally wel­com­ing, with good, hearty, tra­di­tional pub food and a great range of Shep­herd Neame beers.

“The Wheel at West­well has a more mod­ern menu car­ried off with style and yet still feels like a good old English vil­lage pub.”

In the end, Cafe Belge came out on top. It was the breadth of the menu and the qual­ity of the staff that won the day for the restau­rant.

De­lighted owner Gary Bush said: “We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who voted for us for their con­tin­ued sup­port. It’s won­der­ful. And I’d like to thank the staff, who are so ded­i­cated.”
