Wiveton Bell, Norfolk, has been named as the East of England regional winner of The Good Food Guide Readers' Restaurant of the Year Award and appears in 'The Good Food Guide 2011.
More than 25,000 diners nominated* their favourite restaurants, pubs and cafés. Among the many recommendations, Wiveton Bell was put forward for its 'great food, wonderful warm service and lovely atmosphere'.
Wiveton Bell owners, Berni Moritt and Sandy Butcher were delighted. Berni says: "We are over the moon to be the East of England winners of one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. It means so much to be recognised in this way. "We're thankful to all of the customers that nominated us, as well as our fantastic local suppliers and amazing team at Wiveton Bell who have worked so hard to be awarded this accolade by The Good Food Guide."
The judges have been searching for independently-owned eateries that deliver excellent regional dishes and use local producers where possible. In line with this year's Which? Awards theme of 'Who cares, wins', they were also looking for impeccable customer service.
Elizabeth Carter, Consultant Editor, The Good Food Guide, says: "It's so exciting to find culinary gems that go the extra mile for their customers and Wiveton Bell is no exception. Local ingredients get top billing at this rejuvenated inn, with cooking following unfussy brasserie lines." View the Good Food Guide website here.
