Samuel’s, the fine dining restaurant at Swinton Park, has been named as a finalist in the Taste of England category of the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013.

 As a finalist, Samuel’s now goes forward to the glittering Awards Ceremony which is being held on 20 May 2013 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford, Manchester.

 Samuel’s will have to wait until then to find out which award they will receive.  All finalists are guaranteed to receive either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.

 Commenting on the finalists James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive said “I would like to congratulate all those nominated as VisitEngland Awards for Excellence finalists this year.  We received 320 applications and the quality of submissions was higher than ever.  It is therefore no small achievement for Samuel’s to become a finalist and justifiably take credit and pride in earning a coveted place in the top five in their category in England.  I wish everyone all the best for the final in May”.

 Felicity Cunliffe-Lister, proprietor of Swinton Park, commented “We are really excited to have been selected as finalists for such a prestigious award at a national level. We have always championed Yorkshire and local produce and we are very proud to be a Taste of England finalist.”
