Great Taste Awards 2010 (Winner 1 & 2 Stars) – This is a national competition where food is blind tasted by panels of judges. Categories are further broken down into winners, 1,2 and 3 star awards. Here we won 1 star for the Battlefield faggotts and 2 stars for the Battlefield Beef and Ale Pie.
Great Taste Awards 2011 (Winner 2 Stars) - In 2011 we were delighted to win 2 Gold Stars for our Fillet Steak. This is a very popular cut in the butchery and comes from our home reared Hereford X herd. This award is especially appreciated as it recognises all of the hard work put in by the Albrighton Estate farm staff over long months to rear the cattle from their birth on the farm. The farm staff work tirelessly in rearing the cattle using the best possible methods. Special praise should also go to our butchers at Battlefield who then take over to prepare and present the beef to the highest possible standards.
Great Taste Awards 2012 (Winner 1 Star) - We are again proud to be among the awards run by The Guild of Fine Foods Great Taste Awards,this time it was for our Home Reared Lamb which is quite special to us as the Lambs are bred,born and reared on Albrighton Estate fulfilling our ethos of genuine,quality local produce at competitive prices.
