A PERSHORE hotel has become the latest food venue in Wychavon to achieve the Healthier Choices Food Award.
The healthy eating scheme, run by Worcestershire Regulatory Services, has recognised The Angel Hotel for offering a variety of healthy and flexible options.
Only restaurants with the highest possible five-star food hygiene rating, like The Angel, can be in the contention for the award.
The hotel has also been handed a Gold Award for using food that has been grown or produced locally.
As well as having its own farm to source its food from, The Angel Hotel uses local food suppliers and they change their menu every two months to reflect the seasonal produce available.
Daily specials are also on offer and customers can have dishes changed to meet their dietary requirements, all of which means their food is ‘heavenly’ and healthy.
Carloz Mendez, head chef at The Angel Hotel, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have achieved this award.
“We work hard to ensure that as much local produce, including our own lamb and pork from our own farm, is included on our menu and in our healthier and smaller portions.
“The whole team feel really proud of being recognised in this way.”
Coun Gerry O’Donnell, who is responsible for promoting health improvement across Wychavon, said: “Healthy eating plays an important role in healthy lifestyles and a lifestyle that incorporates a healthy diet- as well as regular, moderate physical activity – will help us live longer and improve our quality of life.
“The Angel Hotel, and other establishments that offer healthy and fresh food, play a valuable role in helping us achieve this lifestyle.”
