B & Bs and Guest Houses
Sponsored by Thomas Ridley Food Service
Knife & Fork – Banbury
'The room was exquisite: quality furnishings, antiques, lovely views, bottled water, fruit bowl, tea and coffee. My husband had a jar of chocolate brownies (veggie, gluten free), I had a jar of chocolate brownies for me (veggie, GF and dairy free) and the dog had his personally labelled bag of dog chews... The decor was restful and tasteful. We even had a bookcase of books to browse through in the spacious room.
Brocco on the Park - Sheffield
'The entire place has undergone a total refurbishment and the results are stunning, especially the bedrooms and bathrooms. However, the menu is limited and very much designed for the modern dining experience. Gluten free and vegetarian dishes are marked and they happily adapted to accommodate my daughters allergies. Dinner was delicious, but sadly, breakfast was a bit disappointing.'
Strattons Hotel - Swaffham, Norfolk
‘Phenomenal that they make everything from scratch and are not dependent on ready made products. I love that they will customise their menus to suit the needs and be exciting. Really lovely hotel and the care that they put into it really shows in their food.'
Swandale Guest House - Yorkshire
'A lovely little seaside B&B on the north Yorkshire coast, spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable. The owner herself has allergies and provides a good but fairly basic dinner and breakfast menu for those with dietary restrictions.'
