Burnham's Food Festival and Mitre restaurant scoop Somerset awards

The team behind Burnham-On-Sea's Food and Drink Festival and the managers of a town centre restaurant are celebrating after winning two awards this week.

Held at Brympton House in Yeovil, the Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards saw the Burnham Food Festival team go head-to-head with Exmoor Food Festival and Taunton Farmers' Market - and win the title of best food event in Somerset.

Burnham's Mitre Restaurant also won the award for best International Restaurant in Somerset.

Food Festival co-organiser Bev Milner Simonds told "We want to say a big thank you to our visitors, sponsors, supporters, suppliers, volunteers and local businesses who celebrate with us at the high points, have faith in our aims, back us, come along and generally jump in! We do this to make where we live better, bring long term economic benefit to Somerset and to celebrate the fantastic producers. Thank you to those who nominated us. Bring on 22nd October!"

Co-organiser Sarah Milner Simonds added: "When we started the festival four years ago it was a direct reaction to the greengrocers closing - now Burnham-On-Sea's home to the best food event in Somerset, the best cafe in Somerset, Calm Gourmet Coffee, the best International Restaurant in Somerset, The Mitre, an award-winning fishmongers, Seafoods, a deli Truckles supplied by the best butcher in Somerset, Pynes, and the brand new Fabulous Fruit & Veg - we hope that the festival's profile will contribute to their continued success."
