Staff at Lower Barn Café in Rayleigh are celebrating after being crowned Best Family Dining at a prestigious food and drink awards earlier this month.
The Essex Life Food and Drink Awards praise the very best from the local food and drink industry, with 13 categories to celebrate the best of the region.
Head Chef at Lower Barn Café, David Scanlon, says: “We were excited and surprised to win the award, we have always tried to create an environment and menu that opens up good quality food and a warm welcome to everyone.”
The panel of judges crowned Lower Barn Café the winner of Best Family Dining, at the awards ceremony on October 5 at Braxted Park, on the outskirts of Chelmsford.
Lower Barn Café, which is situated on Lower Barn Farm, which houses home and garden products, prides itself in producing quality meals for all the family and keeping the little ones entertained with a menu full of delicious kid’s options and pages of fun activities.
The Cafe is also home to an outdoor play area.
As well as the day-to-day running of the café, they also hold private events for children – most recently the Princess Parties, that took place during the Summer Holidays, and the popular Halloween party, which is taking place
on October 31.
