A Bridgnorth tapas restaurant has scooped a brace of awards in a national contest at the end of last year. The Food Awards England 2018 welcomed over 250 guests at Manchester’s Piccadilly Hotel in October in a celebration of the achievements of suppliers and specialists at restaurants from all over England – and Casa Ruiz, which is based in a historic 400-year-old building at the end of Bridgnorth’s High Street, picked up the award for Best Mediterranean Establishment in the Midlands.
The long-established eatery went on to win the gong for Best Mediterranean Establishment overall, much to the delight of chef Sam and manager Beth, who were in Manchester to collect the award.
A spokesperson for the awards says, “The awards celebrate everything related to food and provide a platform to thank those who have dedicated their whole career to providing us with great gastronomic delights as well as those who help us explore new flavours and world cuisines. We’d like to congratulate the winners and finalists for their amazing achievements.”
