The North West Restaurant Awards 2011

The North West Restaurant Awards 2011


At Forward Ladies we get about a bit (in the nicest possible way!). With over 300 events per year we see a lot of venues and that inspired Sue France, our licensee in Merseyside and Cheshire, to encourage members in her region to rate all the restaurants visited in 2011. The results are now in!

Forward Ladies of the North West diligently filled in voting questionnaires at each venue, rating them against 11 questions with topics including Atmosphere, Location and Quality of Food.

We now have winners in two categories:


The Best Restaurant award goes to The Red House Restaurant in Chester. High points were given for the fantastic setting on the river bank, the delicious food and the friendly welcoming service.


The Best Private Dining Room went to Abode in Chester. The lunch served in the private dining room there was described as ‘simply stunning’ and far exceeded expectations of a corporate lunch.

Sue spoke of the events held in the area during 2011:

“Our membership in Merseyside and Cheshire is building really well and we have enjoyed some wonderful events over the last year. We place great importance in running our events at quality venues so recognising the best of these seemed like a great idea. We very much look forward to events in 2012 at our favourite restaurants and hotels and of course new ones who will be in the running for next year’s awards!”
