Crombie Lockwood sponsors Outstanding Restaurant at the Wellington hospitality awards.
The Capital Awards took place last Sunday evening, celebrating and supporting excellence in the Wellington hospitality industry. The Capital Awards encompass the entire region including the heart of the City and reaching as far afield as the Kapiti Coast, Hutt Valley, and Wairarapa.
This year the award ceremony was held in the Memorial Theatre followed by a “Casino Royale” themed celebration in the Hunter Lounge. There was plenty of gambling, a live band and great food, cooked by some of Wellington’s best chefs.
As part of our ongoing support to the Restaurant Association, Crombie Lockwood proudly sponsored the Outstanding Restaurant award, which was one of 17 award categories.
The award went to the very deserving, Charley Noble Eatery and Bar, a relatively new business to the scene, known for their fire cooking methods.
Charley Noble Eatery and Bar posted on their website, “Thank you for your business, support and ongoing encouragement. And of course a huge thanks to our amazing, talented team, from the front-of-house to our incredible Chefs and kitchen hands. We are very, very happy and very, very proud. Thanks Wellington – again!!!!” charleynoble.co.nz/charley-noble-news/charley-noble-wins-at-capital-awards-2014
