There has been Michelin stars, food industry awards and accolades aplenty for our West Midlands pubs and restaurants to celebrate this month.
Congratulations to Warwick’s Tasca Dali who has been awarded Best Spanish Restaurant of the year at the first Restaurant Awards 2019 – Midlands Edition. Owner Alex Gidon Clayton told the Warwick Courier: “I decided to open a restaurant in Warwick because I thought it was an amazing town with a good sense of community and history and place where I could take a risk to do something different. At Tasca Dali we try and give people the traditional way of Spanish cooking. We work with what is in season, what dishes are appropriate for the weather and what is good value.”
The Drawing Board in Leamington has been named the UK’s Best Beer Pub in Great British Pub Awards.The Leamington venue opened in 2015 and has created a beer selection including their own beer, Elephant Wash brewed with Old Pie Factory in Warwick. The team also own the DB Bottle Shop at 3 Court Street, which specialises in craft beer and Japanese whisky.
Monsoon Estates Coffee Company has won nine (yes nine!) gold stars at the national Great Taste Awards. The family-run business specialises in hand-roasted, small batch coffees and their Ethiopian Guji Derikocha coffee was one of only six coffees in the UK to be awarded the top rated three stars.
Still in Birmingham congratulations to The High Field for scooping the Best Gastropub in the Midlands in the Food Awards England ceremony.
