A Bumper Night for Edgbaston Village at Midlands Awards

Businesses from within Edgbaston Village, on the Calthorpe Estate, celebrated a bumper night at the Midlands Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards this week, scooping a total of four awards.

The Edgbaston was awarded Best Cocktail Bar and Best Boutique Hotel, El Borracho De Oro won Best Spanish Restaurant, and Leo Kattou from Simpsons was named Rising Star of the region.

In celebration of the award, which El Borracho secured for the second year in a row, the restaurant offered all customers a free glass of Cava to celebrate the win.

Emma Yufera-Ruiz from El Borracho De Oro, commented: “We are delighted to have been recognised by not only our customers, but also by our peers, with this award. At El Borracho we place so much importance on authenticity, in order to give our customers a true Spanish experience when they dine with us, which is why we import so many ingredients directly from Spain.

“To be recognised as the Best Spanish Restaurant in the Midlands is a dream come true, and testament to the hard work of our team, not to mention the loyalty of our customers.”

Nicki Gibberson, Head of Marketing for Calthorpe Estates, added: “We are extremely proud that the Midlands’ Best Cocktail Bar, Best Boutique Hotel, Best Spanish Restaurant and the region’s Rising Star are all located in Edgbaston Village.

“In 2014, we created a multi-million-pound masterplan to create a new heart for Edgbaston. El Borracho, Simpsons and The Edgbaston are amongst a number of restaurants, bars and retail outlets that have transformed the village into a must-visit destination, and we’re delighted to see them recognised so publicly.”

To be eligible for the awards, businesses had to meet a set criteria and be nominated by their customers, before a panel industry experts made the final decision.

The awards saw over 450 people in attendance, including the biggest names and faces in the food and catering industry from all around the West Midlands, to honour and award the very best restaurants, cafes, eateries, chains, hotels, chefs and more in the world of hospitality.
