Cumbria Life announces award contenders

We're delighted to have been nominated for not one, not two, but three categories in the Cumbria Life Food and Drink Awards 2013.

One of the rising stars of our Michelin Star kitchen, James Maggiore, is up for Young Chef of the Year meanwhile we're in the running for The Judges' Award for Restaurant of the Year and the Outstanding Service Award.

General Manager Andrew McPherson said: "We're absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted for these awards, each of which is testament to the hard work and dedication of what I think is a super team at Holbeck Ghyll. The quality of our food and the standard of our service are among the key things that set us apart from other hotels and these nominations reflect that. I'm very proud of all involved, including our very talented young chef James."

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner on January 25 but in the meantime you can read all about the awards in January's Cumbria Life, on sale now.
