Indie restaurant Rusty Pig has been awarded gold in the latest round of the Taste of the West Awards.
The popular eaterie in Yonder Street received the accolade in the Restaurant category of the awards.
Rusty Pig founder, chef Robin Rea said: “We were quite a late entry into this year’s awards schedule, and the whole team is thrilled that we have been judged worthy of a gold.
“When the news came through, I was at the Folk Festival in Sidmouth where Rusty Pig was the main caterer on the Ham for the first time. I just had to enjoy a glass of Rusty Pig fizz to celebrate!”
Each year the Taste of the West Awards receive hundreds of food and drink entries from producers across the South West after a coveted award, ranging from highly commended to the coveted gold.
The organisation serves to champion food and drink producers and hospitality businesses across the region, to prove that the South West is best.
