Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards

District’s culinary excellence recognised in food & drink awards.

The renowned hospitality found in South Northamptonshire was recognised once again this week after results of the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards were announced.

The Folly in Towcester walked away with two awards; Restaurant of the Year and the Great Service Award.

In a new award for 2017, Towcester Mill Brewery were joint winners in the One to Watch category sponsored by Whitworth Bros Ltd where judges were looking for young businesses that were demonstrating passion, commitment and were contributing towards growth in the county’s food and drink sector.

Cllr Stephen Clarke, South Northamptonshire Council’s (SNC) portfolio holder for economic growth, regeneration and housing, said:

“South Northamptonshire is one of the best places to live in the country and SNC is doing all it can to support economic growth by attracting inward investment and by building productive relationships with existing businesses.

“I’d like to congratulate and thank those to businesses which contribute to such events as it helps to enhance the district’s good reputation.”

The brewery’s Bell Ringer Golden Ale was awarded runner-up in the category Artisan Local Drink of the Year Award.

Courteenhall Farms gained the runner-up award in Farming Innovation and The Sun Inn, Kislingbury was runner-up in the Community Pub of the Year award.
