Cheshire venues topped the list of award winners at last night’s prestigious ‘Eat, Sleep, Drink’ Awards in Manchester. One of the county’s nightlife hotspots, Alderley Edge, scooped six out of 14 awards that were presented overall across Cheshire.
The regional awards, known as ‘The Drinkies’ celebrate the best hotels, bars and restaurants across Greater Manchester and, most importantly, are voted for by the general public.
Well done if you spotted that Cheshire is not in Great Manchester! Nevertheless it is the people’s voice that counts at The Drinkies, and the people of Greater Manchester overwhelming rated its neighbour as a favourite destination for food and drink.
Winners from the pretty Cheshire village of Alderley Edge, well-known as a luxury destination, included The Botanist, The Bubble Room, The Alchemist, Yu and Piccolino. The four-star Alderley Edge Hotel won Best Boutique Hotel in South Manchester.
Other winners included newcomer Fox in Hale Barns, The Indian Tiffin Room in Cheadle, Victors in Hale, San Carlo in Hale Barns, and Mobberley’s very delightful Roebuck Inn, which has recently undergone a full refurbishment.
Beautiful Mottram Hall was awarded Best Wedding Venue, while another jewel in Cheshire’s crown, The Mere, received Best Luxury Hotel.
