WRS16016 Gold Food Award For Family Run Restaurant

A family run café and restaurant that gets its meat from its own butchers has scooped Worcestershire’s top award for healthier, locally-sourced food.

Banners, near the new Bromsgrove train station on Finstall Road, took the gold level Healthier Choices Food Award from Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) for their flexible healthier menu options and use of local food.

They are the first eatery in the town to achieve the award.

Banners took gold for using meat from their own butchery next door, Banners Foods, in addition to having a wide variety of healthier options including fish, chicken, eggs, soups, chargrilled meat and fish skewer dishes, light bites for smaller appetites, and healthier breakfast options.

Adam Banner, manager, said: “It’s great to receive this award, especially being the first in Bromsgrove. It acknowledges all the hard work the staff have put in and it’s just in time for the new evening menu that started at the end of July.”

WRS Joint Committee Chairman Cllr Bronwen Behan said: “Wherever we see a Healthier Choices Food Award we know that business is making a special effort.”

The Healthier Choices Food Awards are for Worcestershire food businesses who offer customers a variety of healthier and customisable menu options, with a special Gold award for those who also use locally-sourced produce.

Eateries or caterers with the highest-possible five star Food Hygiene Rating are eligible for the awards that come with a range of additional business benefits such as nutritional analysis of recipes, discounted training and networking and informative events.
