As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind tasting by hundreds of judges.
The Granville Hotel explains: “We decided to enter the Great Taste awards this year as we are very proud of the food that we prepare and feel that The Great Taste symbol is our customers guarantee our product has been through a rigorous and independent judging process. It’s not about smart packaging or clever marketing – it’s all about taste.”
