Scheme Participant HQ Collection wins national Restaurant of the Year Award 2017
The Copper Horse Restaurant located just outside of Scarborough, has been awarded the prestigious ‘Restaurant of the Year’ award by Les Routiers.
The award for the newly refurbished Copper Horse celebrates the restaurant’s creative use of fresh, local and seasonal produce.
Tina Griffiths from Les Routiers said, ‘Our winners source ingredients from specialist local suppliers, which they use imaginatively in their unpretentious and often regional dishes. The Copper Horse’s appreciation of regional produce is what underpins Les Routiers’ philosophy. We are delighted to award them Restaurant of the Year 2017.’
Nick Thomas, who owns a number self-catering establishments and the restaurant with his wife Sandra said “Our fantastic team work hard to ensure that first-class food and drink are at the heart of what we do at The Copper Horse, so we are absolutely delighted to receive this latest accolade. Since the restaurant re-opened following a major refurbishment in May 2106 we’ve seen more people than ever visiting The Copper Horse and we know from talking to customers that they are delighted with the new look and feel at the restaurant”.
The Copper Horse Restaurant, along with nearby boutique holiday cottages and rooms, forms part of Nick and Sandra’s North Yorkshire-based HQ Collection, which also includes The Mayfield in Seamer, The Plough in Scalby, and The Yew Tree Cafe & Bistro in Scalby. They have been a participant of the National Quality Assurance Scheme since 2012.
