We are delighted to announce that we were named 'best informal eating experience' at the 2016/2017 Scottish Thistle Awards on Friday!
The glittering ceremony, held during Scottish Tourism Week, took place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre hosted by TV presenter and Deacon Blue drummer, Dougie Vipond, and presenter and former Miss Scotland, Jennifer Reoch.
The awards recognise innovation, excellence and success in the hospitality and tourism industry – rewarding hotels, restaurants, B&Bs, visitor attractions, events and individuals who go that extra mile to provide customers with exceptional service.
Rebecca Brooks, Chair of the Scottish Thistle Awards Industry Panel and VisitScotland Board member, said: “Congratulations to all of the winners at the 2016/17 Scottish Thistle Awards National Final. They represent the best of the best in Scotland and epitomise the strength and depth of the tourism and hospitality experience across the country.
“The Scottish tourism industry and hospitality sector prides itself on delivering a rewarding experience for visitors and all of our finalists should be proud of their achievements in reaching the final – which, in itself, is both a recognition of excellence and innovation, and a sign of quality."
Director of No.10 Bar & Restaurant, Allan Henderson, said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive this industry accolade. To be recognised by the Scottish tourism sector is a huge achievement for the whole team and a real honour for the business.
"Our team has worked incredibly hard over the last 18 months to provide the North-east with the best customer service and quality produce so they can enjoy eating local and they have truly made the business the success it is today. We are very proud to fly the flag for the North-east in the tourism sector, whilst also helping to revitalise an Aberdeen institution and create something exciting for the city.”
