Multi-award winning pub group Anglian Country Inns
scoops the big one...
'BEST FOOD OFFER'
Last night, Anglian Country Inns Ltd won the much coveted 'BEST FOOD OFFER' category at The Publican Awards 2013. More than 1,100 people attended a glittering awards ceremony, hosted by comedian and TV star Rob Brydon, and was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. The Publican awards are recognised as the biggest in the pub industry and celebrate the achievements of leading pub companies across a range of categories that reflect the products and services on offer across the British Pub Estate. The 'Best Food Offer' is awarded to a company delivering a successful food offer across their estate, with food a key part of the company's total sales.
Said James Nye, managing director of Anglian Country Inns, ‘This is brilliant news and, of course, we are over the moon to have been recognised by the industry as having the 'Best Food Offer' in the country. We have amazing teams of staff at all our establishments who are instrumental in our success. Without their hard work and dedication, we would not be as successful as we are. The judging was tougher than it has ever been and this year some of the biggest industry names were involved in the process and the competition was fierce with some outstanding companies shortlisted. We are immensely honoured to have picked up this award.’
Feedback from the judges -
“Not only does Anglian Country Inns split its business geographically between the north Norfolk coast and land-locked Hertfordshire, but its four sites are each of an entirely individual nature. For many, this might prove a disadvantage but this family-run operation thrives on it. What the local seaside pub, destination hotel, rural gastro pub and high street bar brasserie have in common is an excellent and precisely pitched food offer.”
“Anglian Country Inns successfully connects with the local environment, both through its food and via involvement with local events.”
“Dynamic, diverse and never dogmatic, Anglian Country Inns delivers high quality food and imaginative dishes balances with more classical options appropriate to different customer groups. It also has a wide ranging drinks list.”
