The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) have just announced their awards and there are a few notable London winners. The SRA aims to help restaurants "source food more sustainably, manage resources more efficiently and work more closely with their community" and you may have seen them mentioned every week in Giles Coren's reviews for the Times.
While they cover the whole of the UK, there are a few notable London winners. Bruno Loubet's Grain Store picks up London Sustainable Restaurant of the Year, Islington's vegetarian restaurant The Gate is "Most improved" while London pub owners Geronimo Inns win Sustainable Large Group of the Year.
Outside of London, the big winners are Devon's cafe-ODE who win overall Sustainable Restaurant of the Year, Carluccio's who win the SRA Innovation Award (for being the first to post all its menus on Good Food Talks, an app launched in 2013 to enable the visually impaired to read menus) and River Cottage, who win the SRA award for sourcing while Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons won Sustainable Hotel Restaurant of the Year.
