The Trencherman Awards 2018

Frobishers was delighted to attend this year’s Trencherman Awards on November 20th, held at the stunning Salcombe Harbour Hotel. Now in its 4th year, the Trencherman Awards celebrate the region’s fabulous food and drink offering, with top restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars scooping the much-coveted prizes for each category.

As one of the key sponsors of the event, we were delighted to show our support again this year, and enjoy a fabulous five-course dinner prepared by last year’s winners in the process.

With over 20,000 votes received during the nomination process, it was no doubt a very tough job for judges to select individual winners, but we’re guessing quite a pleasurable one at the same time!

Our congratulations go to all the winners and grand finalists, and we very much look forward to being involved with these prestigious awards again next year.
