Tintern Old Railway Station
Only 17 restaurants, pubs and cafes across Wales have been shortlisted from hundreds of entries and now the public will decide which will win through an online vote.
There are three sub-categories for Best Place to Eat – Best Restaurant, Best Pub and Best Café. The tea room at The Old Station has been shortlisted in the Best Cafe category.
Lesley Sterry, the tea room owner said: “It’s a real honour to be shortlisted. We pride ourselves on serving locally sourced produce and all our cakes are baked here on site in our ticket office kitchen. We aim to give our customers a really excellent experience each time they visit us so to be recognised like this is very special. We hope everyone in Monmouthshire and our regulars will go online and vote for The Old Station.”
Anyone voting for the Best Place to Eat will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a hands-on cookery course for two people with chef Angela Gray at Llanerch Vineyard in the Vale of Glamorgan, plus an overnight stay at one of the vineyard’s luxury farmhouse rooms.
The winners of the Best Place to Eat and the other categories for the National Tourism Awards for Wales, which is being organised by Visit Wales in commercial partnership with Quadrant Media & Communications, will be unveiled at the awards ceremony at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on 21 November 2013.
