ely Wins at the Food&Wine Restaurant of the Year Awards!


We are truly is deligthed to announce that ely has just won the "Best Wine Experience" award at the 2010 Food&Wine Magazine Restaurant of the Year Awards, which took place Sunday 22nd August at The Four Seasons Hotel.

Here's what Food&Wine Magazine had to say about the award;

"The Judges were impressed with the steadfast vision of proprietors Erik & Michelle Robson who, in the face of greatly changing times, grown what is now a market leader from a darling little wine bar venture into the recently rebranded group containing a wine bar, gastro pub and brasserie. At the centre of it all the original kernel remains: the desire to offer a broad, flexible and inspiring wine experience, delivered with passion by a dedicated team - whether serving you a glass of wine or guiding you through a six-week wine appreciation course."

The three ely's were also ranked in the top 20 restaurants in the country as voted by the public.

"We're really chuffed to have won this award, especially after whats been a tough couple of years. We'd really like to thank our dedicated team of staff for the hard work, energy and enthusiasm they bring to work every day. It's particularly good timing too given that we are just about to launch a new and truly exciting wine list in September in all three ely's. We hope to see you in one of the venues soon to try a glass or two." Erik & Michelle Robson
