Maids Head wins Best Food & Drink Category at Tourism Awards
Maids Head staff are celebrating winning Best Food & Drink Tourism attraction at the EDP Visitnorfolk.co.uk Tourism Awards.
The hotel, which returned to private ownership last December when it was purchased by the Chaplin family, who also own The Gonville in Cambridge, embarked on a buy local policy in the New Year, inspired by Operations Manager, Dan Hawkie.
The entire restaurant menu is now sourced from local suppliers including Tavern Tasty Meats North Walsham, Barsby Produce King’s Lynn and Howard’s fishmonger in Norwich. Wine from Winbirri Vineyard in the Norfolk Broads features, along with the signature Maids Head Ale brewed by Woodfordes at Woodbastwick, also in the Norfolk Broads.
The kitchen brigade is led by Polish Head Chef Marcin Pomierny, with Sous Chef David Lovett.
