We were looking for a restaurant, café or pub which really meets the needs of family dining…and these finalists appeal to diners across the generations
The Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards is one of the biggest events in the local calendar and it is hugely anticipated by the region's food and drink industry all year round.
We champion the he good and the great from the region's food & drink industry including local producers & suppliers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers, and people who care about the countryside and the future of our local environment.
Judges of the 'Family Dining Award' were looking for a restaurant, café or pub which really meets the needs of family dining, by demonstrating attention to the requirements across the generations of diners both in terms of its food offering, atmosphere, entertainment, sense of theatre, and the variety of menu for guests regardless of age.
Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the 'Family Dining Award', sponsored by South West Bride.
