Here at Watershed we are proud of our ethical, sustainable approach to food, so it is with great excitement that we can announce our work has been recognised by the Bristol Tourism and Hospitality Awards 2012, who have shortlisted us for the Taste of Bristol Award.
We are in good company, sharing our category with local friends and favourites Pieminister, Lahloo Pantry, Jacks Brasserie, Eat Drink Bristol and The Swan in Wedmore. We'll all be waiting in anticipation to find out who the winner is at the Awards ceremony on Mon 28 Jan at Bristol Marriott City Centre Hotel.
The Taste of Bristol award celebrates businesses that use local products, are committed to consistent high quality food and customer experiences, are accessible and sustainable, and committed to the local economy.
Our Plot to Plate policy means that we produce and offer a healthy, balanced menu while supporting the local economy, reducing our carbon footprint and paying the highest respect to the welfare of producers, animals, and the quality of the land. 60% of our trusted suppliers are based within a 30 mile radius of us, and 90% of them are based right here in the South West.
By creating seasonal menus (check out our current Winter menu here), our food and drink naturally draws from the local environment and community. Our Executive Chef Oliver Pratt and his team work closely with suppliers to make sure everything they offer fits with our Plot to Plate ethos.
"It's a credit to everyone - staff, suppliers and customers - that we have been nominated for the Taste of Bristol Award. We're proud to keep our offer - food and drink - local, sustainable and ethical while embracing all things sustainable, and it's a commitment that we are constantly evolving and developing."
