The UK^s most sustainable restaurants

Article Date: 2015-02-24

NFFF member The Captain’s Galley and the organic café Daylesford and have been named joint winners of the Sustainable Restaurant of the Year awards.

Now in their fourth year, the awards, run by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), are held to honour establishments who have made extraordinary accomplishments to push sustainability within their organisation.

Jim Cowie, the owner of The Captain^s Galley, only serves in-season seafood if it is in plentiful supply whilst Daylesford operates a 2000-acre organic farm which provides the ingredients for its three cafes in Gloucestershire, Notting Hill and Pimlico.

Of the two winning restaurants, the SRA said: "they demonstrate perfectly the democratisation of sustainable dining, offering diners the chance to eat well wherever they live and whatever their budget."

Raymond Blanc, who is the president of the SRA, summed up the event: "These awards are for me as important as Michelin Stars. They represent what everybody who is passionate about food should regard as the perfect ingredients: good ethics, an understanding that food touches every part of our lives and a desire to ensure that future generations will be able to experience from it the same pleasure as we have.”

The NFFF was also represented by Calum Richardson of the Bay Fish and Chip Shop, who finished runner up in the Sustainable Restaurant of the Year & Scottish Sustainable Restaurant of the Year awards.
