We’re a Cumbria Life awards finalist!

We’re absolutely delighted to announce that The Royal Barn is officially a finalist in the ‘Best Pub/Bar category’ at the Cumbria Life Food and Drink Awards 2020!

The prestigious awards ceremony is returning for the ninth year on Thursday, 5th March at Kendal College. Chefs, hoteliers, café owners, restaurateurs, producers and industry movers and shakers will gather at the event to celebrate a year of tremendous development in the industry.

During the evening, Kendal College students will cook a three-course dinner for guests under the watchful eye of head of school for hospitality Richard Axford.

The event will culminate with the announcement of the winners of 14 main awards by the host. Previous hosts have included Helen Skelton, Prue Leith, Jay Rayner and Nigel Barden. Additional special awards will be announced on the night.

The category that we are a finalist in is ‘Pub or Bar’ – this award aims to encapsulate the evolving scene of dynamic pubs and watering holes popping up across our county. The winning venue could represent a particular theme, culture or experience, or may just be a perfect example of a typical Cumbrian boozer. Judges will assess the full experience, from the quality and selection of food/drink on offer, right through to the warmth of welcome, majoring on a truly convivial atmosphere.

Cumbria Life editor Michaela Robinson-Tate says: “We delighted to be able to stage the ninth Cumbria Life Food & Drink Awards. In past years, readers have let us know about restaurants that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. We hope that they will do the same this year and tell us about hidden gems throughout the county.”

The winners will be profiled in the April edition of Cumbria Life, published on Thursday, 19th March.

Wish us luck!
