This award was open to anyone in the food or drink industry who has started a new venture within the last 18 months. Here’s our finalists for 2017...
“The past 12 months has been an extremely busy time for us and we are very thankful for the support we have received from the local community this past year,” says director Sarah Bathurst Brown. “We are passionate about creating tapas dishes of authenticity, character and simplicity. Our selection of charcuterie and artisan cheeses and selected wines are produced from across the many regions of Spain. We want to offer true and authentic experience to our customers, bringing back the concept of what tapas really is: sharing quality time together.”
“We’re thrilled to be in the finals of these prestigious awards and terribly grateful to our customers who voted for us,” says co-owner Julie Candy. “As a family- owned artisan delicatessen and organic coffee house, we’re passionate about sourcing delicious British produce helping to support local growers, farmers, dairies and producers. Our Organic, Fairer than Fair Trade Coffee is our pride and joy. Our customers appreciate the quality of the produce and our menu and that we offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. They create the buzz!”
“We only launched our café in January as part of our works as The Tipsy Pigs, so we’re incredibly proud to be recognised by our lovely customers in the Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards,” says director James Farmer (pictured above with co-owners Neil Tompkins and Carla Williams). “Working within and alongside The Lightbox gallery and museum, with which we enjoy a brilliant relationship, we’ve tried to create a café that is welcoming to all with friendly service and beautifully presented, healthy and wholesome food.”
