Byron’s announced as finalist for top award
Food Award Finalist
In the midst of a busy Friday afternoon – a hive of clients, excitement in the kitchen as the first robots are rolled of the hand painted production line, to Christmas planning, and a beautiful wedding in the Ballroom with Champagne flowing, water fountain soothing beside manicured lawns (and of course amongst a top team that we are super proud of), a new mail pings to the inbox.
A very special email. Read with delight and jumping for joy, we all huddled around to see before our very eyes that Byron’s Brasserie has been nominated as a finalist in the upcoming Nottingham Post Food & Drink Awards 2018. Punching the air with glee, this is a great moment in the special journey of making Byron’s at Colwick Hall a destination venue for dining. We can’t thank our customers enough for voting for us and coming in their droves, taking time out of their busy schedule to support and encourage us to new heights. We are greatly indebted to our wonderful guests, clients and customers. One big family that makes work a pleasure. It is also down to the hard work that every member of the team puts in to make the Brasserie stand ahead.
Best Out Of Town Category
The Posts Food and Drink Awards, now in its fourth year, is one of the most prestigious awards in the Nottinghamshire region for the hospitality sector, and last year attracted a record 8000 nominations for over 300 venues. With a plethora of competition, it is great kudos to the Byron’s team to have made the finalist position in the Best Out of Town category of the awards. “There is such a high standard of nominations. It really is the premier food and drink event,” said Nottingham Post editor Mike Sassi. The team are simply thrilled but its work as usual and the recognition has given each and every one of us a greater boost to work yet harder.

Destination Venue For Dining
Over the past few years a huge drive has gone into high quality food and presentation with passion, and a firm focus on consistency. That said, the team has been brimming with ideas and have got fully behind each of our themed concepts to convert idea to reality. It is no mean feat and a huge credit to Head Chef Jason and his kitchen team and also the great cooperation and understanding with the front of house. Strong communication and connection in the Brasserie led by Lauren, makes for a very happy team and in turn very happy customers.
Just last week saw the launch of our latest menu, a night filled with fabulous guests tasting the new fayre and entertained by local jazz artist Claire Shaw, and without doubt Hannah concocting her latest cocktail creations. The dinner guests have continually remarked how exceptional the food and service has been and sharing all their feedback with us which has been invaluable in our path to success.
The experience journey really took off at the May Bank Holiday last year when we had Belle come in costume and sang some beautiful ballads that were as old as time. At every stage it was a huge team effort to assemble all the components of the experience to perfection and you will remember wizarding fever hit the global stage and is set to return bigger and better for Halloween 2018. The current theme for afternoon tea is MayTheFourthBeWithYou and is running everyday until 31st July. An exciting whats on calendar keeps us delivering something new for our regular customers and we can’t wait to see their smile when they return to try the next theme.
For now its back to a busy Friday, but we are super happy, spring in our step, we just can’t wait till the Awards Night on 14th June and more details can be found on this Nottingham Post article.
