The popular Bishop’s Table café, located in the grounds of the historic Bishop’s Palace, has been awarded a prestigious Quality Food & Drink Accolade by VisitEngland.
Assessments are based on scores gained during an annual Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme assessment by VisitEngland. Marks were allocated for the outstanding experiences attractions provide to visitors across categories including Welcome, Best Told Story, Quality Food & Drink, Hidden Gem and Gold for overall winners. Only 97 attractions received an award across the categories this year.
This accolade is testament to the high standards achieved, which the VisitEngland assessor felt were truly deserving of recognition.
Head of Catering at the Palace Trust, Nick Hampson, said “We are absolutely thrilled that the Bishops Table café has been recognised in this way. Our staff always go the extra mile to offer a warm welcome to all visitors as well as delicious, locally-sourced food and drink. But it’s particularly encouraging to see that their efforts have been rewarded in this way after such a challenging few years.”
VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:
“It’s so exciting to see our brilliant attractions providing outstanding experiences for visitors and to recognise and showcase the variety and quality across the country.
“England has unmissable visitor attractions and experiences that deliver world-class customer service. They also provide the warmest of welcomes and unforgettable storytelling that connects the whole experience, including retail and food and drink offers that exceed expectations.”
