A RESTAURANT has received an award for being Dorset’s most accommodating dining venue.

The LUXlife magazine Restaurant and Bar award went to Bliss Food Co in Swanage.

Sally Poole and Lou Condie opened Bliss Food Co restaurant in October 2017 after working together with a successful catering business in and around Swanage for more than 14 years. Bliss Food Co, which specialises in freshly prepared, homemade, locally sourced food, regularly sits at the number one spot on TripAdvisor.

Sally and Lou said: “It’s amazing for Bliss Food Co to be recognised. The restaurant has had an outstanding year and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff and customers - without you all Bliss Food Co wouldn’t be possible.”

Edward Faulkner, coordinator of the awards, said: “It is with great pride that I offer my congratulations to all of the deserving winners .”
