BENT on Food has taken home three awards from the 2016 NSW Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence, including the major award of Café of the Year for Regional NSW.
“I was gobsmacked! To win the Best Café Restaurant North Coast/Northern Rivers was fabulous, and I was content, but then to win Best Breakfast Restaurant North Coast/Northern Rivers was the icing on the cake,” business owner Donna Carrier said.
The Manning Valley was well represented with Harrigan’s Irish Pub, Harrington winning NSW Regional Restaurant in a Pub/Club/Tavern and Club Taree taking home NSW Regional Function/Convention Centre Caterer.
The awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the winners. The scores are based on the entire experience from food to customer service when the judges anonymously dine.
Bent on Food will compete with other regional finalists at the National Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence to be held at Four Points Sheraton, Darling Harbour in Sydney on Monday, October 24, 2016. Finalists will be advised of their status by September 26.
