Judges said: This restaurant, based at The Castle Hotel, is headed up by Liam Finnegan, whose passion for fresh local ingredients shines through in their seasonal menu, from the freshly baked bread made in the Castle Bow kitchen and line caught fish to herbs from their own Norman garden. Judges said the exceptional, attentive service was matched by the classily put together food offering in a unique dining environment.
