It’s Gold again in Taste of the West 2016

Added on 01 August 2016

Both The Apple Tree Restaurant and The Apple Tree Farm Shop at Brimsmore Gardens in Yeovil have been awarded Gold once again in the Taste of the West Hospitality and Retail Awards 2016. This is the fourth year running that the Farm Shop has achieved Taste of the West’s top awards and the third year in a row for the restaurant.

The judges heaped praise upon The Apple Tree Farm Shop, for its wide range of products from the south west, reasonable pricing and knowledgeable and friendly staff.  The local and seasonal sourcing in The Apple Tree Restaurant was also applauded and judges were particularly impressed with how the menu lists each producer and how the Farm Shop is used as a larder for ingredients.

Cath Collins, group food manager (above left), explains; “Yes, we did it again! The teams at Brimsmore Gardens really do go above and beyond to understand the products that we sell in the Farm Shop and the food and drink that we serve in the Restaurant, so it’s absolutely fantastic to have this recognised in Taste of the West year on year. It gives us a real boost and definitely spurs us on to keep thinking of ways to give our customers the best possible shopping and dining experience.”

The Taste of the West Hospitality and Retail Awards provide an opportunity for businesses in the West Country to gain recognition for supporting and promoting local producers.
