The AA Press Office released the much anticipated shortlists today for: ‘AA Food Service Award’, ‘AA Housekeeper of the Year Award’, ‘AA Eco Hotel of the Year’, ‘AA Eco Hotel Group of the Year’ and the new ‘AA Spirit Award’.
Ormer is one of only three finalists in the AA Food Service Award category, which was introduced last year. The coveted Award recognises establishments who not only deliver excellent standards of restaurant service and hospitality but also have technical service skills, food and beverage knowledge of the highest standard and a clear commitment to staff training and development.
The three finalists for 2014 are:
Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa, Bath
Galvin at Windows, London
The AA Hospitality Awards take place on 22nd September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London and will see 24 winners receive their awards as well as the announcement of the new three, four and five AA Rosettes and AA Red Star establishments.
Chef Proprietor at Ormer, Shaun Rankin says:
‘The team have worked tirelessly from launch in May 2013 to ensure every detail has been considered and customers expectations have been exceeded. I am so pleased that the hard work has been rewarded and we have been honoured by the shortlist for the AA Hospitality Awards. Being in the Channel Isles means it’s harder for us to get recognised against other restaurants on the mainland and it makes a real difference for us to be acknowledged in this way.’
