Una Kitchen has added to its awards haul with a Gold in the 2022 Taste of the West Retail & Hospitality Awards! We are obviously delighted to have achieved this accolade and Glenn and the team full deserve the praise showered on them by the judges. What a great start to 2022!
The awards are designed to promote and support the fantastic local food and drink in the southwest, organised by the largest independent regional food group in the UK, Taste of the West. This year’s winners were announced on 24 January, with Una Kitchen chalking up Gold in the restaurant category.
Announcing the accolade, the Taste of the West judges said: “Una Kitchen is a gem hidden in plain sight and we thoroughly recommend it!”
“Una Kitchen is a lovely relaxed and inviting restaurant,” the judges said. “The range of options on the menu certainly provided good choice for everyone, with the added benefit of a superb woodfired pizza oven.” They also applauded the restaurant’s “excellent value for money”.
Making the most of seasonal, locally sourced produce, Una Kitchen has gained a great reputation for wood-fired cooking at its finest, featuring a menu of local fish dishes, authentic pizzas and classic Sunday roasts. Una Kitchen was named Restaurant of the Year in Cornwall in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2019/20. Headed up by multiple AA Rosette winning Cornish chef Glenn Gatland, Una Kitchen’s Mediterranean-inspired fare makes for a crowd-pleasing menu consisting of good and honest food.
Glenn Gatland said: “I’m delighted with this achievement. The judges had a great experience, which is what we strive for. And it’s particularly pleasing that this recognises the efforts of the whole team. It’s further proof that Una Kitchen is a top food destination in its own right.
“They were impressed by our local sourcing and have encouraged us to make even more of the food provenance on our menus. This is something that we’re really passionate about, supporting our local producers and making the most of the stunning produce our county creates.”
Changing with the seasons, Una Kitchen offers an ever-evolving menu with the Gozney wood-fired oven the heart of the restaurant. The latest addition to the roster is the introduction of weekly Una Sessions: a new series of live music events every Sunday. Serving up delicious wood-fired Sunday roast, expertly mixed cocktails and live acoustic music.
