We've just won a sparkly new award!

Blog

Last night, we were thrilled to be presented with the ‘Quality Big Brand Award’ at the biggest awards ceremony in the restaurant sector: the annual CGA Peach Awards. The award is based on a survey of almost 6000 people throughout the UK, so it’s very much a people’s-choice award, which makes it a particularly sweet victory for us. The category takes into consideration the quality of the food, service and ambience; all factors that we care enormously about.
