Sustainable award for restaurant
A restaurant in Appledore has joined ‘The Ivy’ league for sustainable seafood.
A RESTAURANT in Appledore has become the first in North Devon to be officially recognised by its use of sustainable fish.
The Fish2Fork accreditation of four out of five possible blue fishes rates Bensons Restaurant as ‘excellent’ and puts the eatery in league with famous names such as Raymond Blanc, Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver, and world famous restaurant, The Ivy.
Partners Andy Willerton and Caroline Shoebridge have been running Bensons for 10 years and work closely with S&P Fish of Ilfracombe to promote sustainability.
Andy said: “We are so pleased to have been awarded this accreditation, it has been a long process but fascinating at the same time.
