Winner: The Castle Bow Restaurant, Taunton

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.

Highly commended: The Coleridge Restaurant, Dunkery Beacon Country House Hotel

From its idyllic countryside location, John and Jane Bradley work together to make the most of the plentiful provender of Exmoor, with a well-cooked, classic menu, complemented by a warm and convivial atmosphere.

Highly commended: Ston Easton Park Hotel

Judges said this was ‘fine dining done well and set within exquisite surroundings at Ston Easton’s Sorrell Restaurant. Judges said special mention should go to the desserts, which were truly exceptional!
