On the evening of Thursday 22nd March, we had a fantastic time at the Cumbria Life Food and Drink Awards 2018. Held at Kendal College, the event was hosted by famous food critic, Jay Rayner, and celebrated the county’s best restaurants, chefs, pubs, cafes, food business and producers.
We sponsored the Best Newcomer award and David Jenkins, our sales director, was proud to hand this over to the successful winners Pentonbridge Inn, near Longtown. Head chefs, Jake and Cassie White run this new pub and hotel. The judges said that this pub is “the most exciting food pub to open in Cumbria in years” – high praise indeed for the husband and wife team!
We would like to offer our congratulations to all winners – many of them being our customers.
David also managed to grab a photo opportunity with Jay Rayner!
