...it's all about taking part. Who are we kidding?!
Our fabulous customers voted in their hundreds, managing to shortlist us to the top three in the Food category of the Telegraph's Best Small Shop Awards. Katie attended the glittery awards cermony in London last month, where the winners across ten categories in total were announced.
Unfortunately, we were pipped to the prize by The Cheese Shop in Lincolnshire! Each of the shortlisted food shops were mystery shopped by the Telegraph Magazine's food columnist Rose Prince. Judging by Rose's evaluation of The Cheese Shop, Paul Adam's gave us tough competition and was a sure winner with his specialist product range.
Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up for being shortlisted on a national scale. And a big thank you once again to all our customers that voted for us!
