Held this year at the Bath Pavillion on 28 February 2016, the Bath Good Food Awards seeks to recognise the best restaurants, cafes and delicatessens in more than 30 categories.
After nominees were shortlisted by votes from the public, a panel of gastronomic experts including Telegraph Food Columnist, Xanthe Clay, and Masterchef Champion, Ping Coombs, judged the finalists and announced the winners. With over 12,000 nominations for the 2015 awards, the success reflects a well-deserved victory for The Dower House against impressive competition.
With yet another accolade to add to his repertoire, Head Sommelier Jean-Marc Leitao has compiled the remarkable Wine List using his extensive knowledge and experience by combining flavours and tones from all over the world.
Jean-Marc Leitao comments: “We are delighted to have won Best Fine Dining Wine List – we create our wine lists with care and consideration, and the team at The Dower House Restaurant constantly strives for perfection. We are honoured to match our selection of exquisite wines with the outstanding dishes created by the talented Chef David Campbell.”
Delivering classic continental cuisine with a contemporary edge, the 3 AA Rosette award-winning The Dower House Restaurant offers an array of culinary experiences, from lavish breakfasts to six-course tasting menus.
