The Engine Room wins Silver in Taste of the West 2016

The Engine Room Restaurant at Poundbury Gardens near Dorchester has been awarded Silver in the Taste of the West Hospitality and Retail Awards 2016.

Up against stiff competition from around the region in the Restaurant category, The Engine Room, which described by judges as a “well patronised restaurant”, was commended for its “friendly and welcoming staff and delightful desserts.”

Cath Collins, group food manager, explains: “The kitchen and front of house team deserve a huge pat on the back for their continued hard work in achieving this accolade.

"Our head chef and front of house manager, Dan Vaughan, regularly takes the team to visit our local suppliers, to give them a better understanding of what is being served in the restaurant, and this really does make the difference.

"After seeing how the produce is made and having the opportunity to taste it, they bring this knowledge back to the restaurant so they can advise customers and give well-considered recommendations. This is a fantastic result for the whole team and has given us all a real boost!”

The Taste of the West Hospitality and Retail Awards provide an opportunity for businesses in the West Country to gain recognition for supporting and promoting local producers.
