Three local food and drink outlets have been shortlisted for this year’s Somerset Life Food and Drink Awards. Rosie’s Larder in Wellington and Rumwell Farm Shop are both in the shortlist for the ‘Best Independent Food Shop of the Year’ and The Anchor Inn at Hillfarance is in the final three for the ‘Best Somerset Sunday Roast’, an accolade which the pub won in both 2013 and 2014.
Moonbeams Farm in Wellington has also been nominated for ‘Best Food Product of the Year’ award which it won last year. Judges are currently working to shortlist finalists in this category.
The awards are designed to showcase and celebrate the best producers and suppliers of food and drink in the county. All the nominees are chosen by public vote and then judged by a specially selected panel. The winners in each of the 11 categories will be announced at a special ceremony at Junction 24, the conferences, meetings and events centre off the M5, on Thursday 1st October.
