8 Jun 2011
The Terrace Restaurant, based at Country House venue, Highgate House in Creaton has been shortlisted for Restaurant of the Year' in this year's Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards.
The Awards, devised by Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership (NEP), were launched for the third year running in February and are again aimed at celebrating all that is great about local produce and drink, to recognise excellence within Northamptonshire's dining venues and to reward the hard work of those within the culinary sector.
The initial entries were scrutinized by an expert panel of judges consisting of Jeff and Vita Whitaker of Thrapston-based Whitco which sponsors the two categories, former award-winning restaurant owner Nigel Hollick, Julie Elliot of Angelina Cupcake, who holds the title of ‘Best Local Product', Paul Maylunn of Northamptonshire Trading Standards and the Chief Executive of Northamptonshire Chamber, Paul Griffiths.
Said Paul "I've been impressed by the breadth of entries and in particular the desire by so many venues to support the local economy, whether it's in sourcing good local meat, beer or even the flowers on the tables! Making our selection has been a really difficult task but I wish all the finalists the very best of luck."
A total of five Northamptonshire restaurants have been named as finalists and now go head to head for the title ‘Restaurant of the Year'. Among these finalists is The Terrace Restaurant at Highgate House (TripAdvisor's Number One Hotel in Northampton), which specialises in modern European cuisine, using fresh, local produce.
Manager at The Terrace Restaurant, Paul Loughnane said, "We are thrilled that the Terrace Restaurant has been identified as one of the best Restaurants in Northamptonshire" he continued, "We have a fantastic team here with a united aim of providing our diners with delicious fresh, seasonal meals and an overall excellent experience."
