Oundle Mill, wins Northamptonshire Restaurant of the Year 2010/11

Local restaurant, Oundle Mill, beat off stiff competition to be named Restaurant of the Year 2010/11 in the prestigious Northamptonshire Food Awards!

Alacer is thrilled to have worked alongside Jeremy and the team at Oundle Mill with their Restaurant and Hotel reservation systems over the last couple of years

The Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards celebrate all that is great about the county’s food and drink, recognise excellence within the county’s dining venues and give a public pat on the back to all those who strive to offer exceptional food and drink experiences whilst maintaining strong connections with the community.

Michelin-starred Jason Atherton presented the award at a packed awards dinner in Holdenby House. There were over 50 entrants in the ‘Best Restaurant’ category and the judging was rigorous including: in depth reviews of the menus and wine lists, investigation into the sourcing of local produce, endorsement from diners at Oundle Mill and finally secretive visits from expert  ‘mystery shoppers’.

Oundle Mill was described as;

“Offering a variety of dining options in stylish and sophisticated surroundings”

“Great ingredients are ethically sourced, locally where possible, and blended with classic techniques and modern technology.”

“Oundle Mill exceeds expectations in every way”

“Sublime value for money”

Head Chef and Manager Jeremy Medley commented;

“We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award, especially against such strong competition. Oundle Mill is a fabulous building in a beautiful setting with a passionate and dedicated team and we are all excited about the future.”

Speaking from someone who has dined at Oundle Mill on a number of occasions I can say they are fully deserving of this award and from everyone at Alacer, a massive congratulations to Jeremy and the team for this fantastic achievement!!

Restaurant Show 2010 a great success!

Restaurant Show 2014_1Just a quick follow up to the Restaurant Show 2010 to say a massive thanks to everyone  who came to the team and I on the Alacer stand.  It was fantastic to meet and speak with so many friends, customers, hospitality professionals, partners and other exhibitors and was certainly an enjoyable and productive 3 days.

I hope you all had a great time at the show too, but if you have any thoughts or highlights to share on any aspect of the 3 days then please add a comment below and let us know what you thought.

It was particularly good to get the opportunity to show attendees the latest incarnation of our Restaurant Manager and Hotel Manager tools, and I’m really pleased to say that we had an overwhelmingly positive response and lots of interest in the new functionality.

We are now busy working our way through all the contacts we made and following up on some really exciting opportunities, but we will definitely be in attendance at the show again next year.

If you didn’t have a chance to come and see us at The Restaurant Show this time round though, we will also be at Hospitality 2011 at The NEC Birmingham (24th – 26th January 2011, stand 430).  For more information or to register please see the show website at: http://www.hospitalityshow.co.uk/

In the mean time watch this space for some exciting product announcements ahead of the forthcoming release of the next generation of the Alacer hospitality suite.
