Taste of Excellence 2021 - Use these businesses to support you through the coming weeks
Eating and drinking al fresco.
Lincolnshire Life and Good Taste Lincolnshire have a long history of reporting on and promoting the wonderful producers, eateries and hostelries based in the county. Many, like ourselves, are small family businesses and we have always valued the friendships and partnerships we have built over time to showcase the bounty and hospitality of Lincolnshire.
This month we are featuring locations where you can eat and drink alfresco and make the most of pubs, cafes and restaurants opening their doors once more. The weather, while chilly, has been kind so far, so remember the saying ‘there is no such thing as bad weather – just the wrong clothing’ and make the most of this month supporting these heroes of the hospitality sector.
Lincolnshire Life is still looking towards later in the year and the prospect of running the 25th Taste of Excellence Awards. We hope that by November 2021 we will be welcoming you to celebrate your company and loyal staff conquering these conditions.
Welcome back to all those businesses which have recently reopened. We look forward to visiting you soon.
