Oxfordshire pub The King & Queen has been nominated for a European sustainability award.

Longcot pub The King & Queen has been nominated for the European tourism sustainability award “GrINN Awards 2022” -organised by Quartz Inn Hotels- in the category of Best Gastronomy.

The main objective of the organisers of the awards is to promote good sustainable practices in the hospitality sector and to increase general awareness of the impact of hospitality and tourism activities on the environment.

The King & Queen is a traditional country inn serving a variety of pub favourites. The menu consists of timeless classics and tasty tapas. All hand crafted by in-house Spanish Chef Francisco Rodriguez Mora.

Most ingredients of the food they serve are sourced from local suppliers where possible, to offer the most sustainable and quality insured food whilst supporting local businesses.

Head Chef Rodríguez Mora commented:

“We are very happy and proud of this GrINN Awards nomination and the recognition for all our team. In Spain, where I come from, these awards are highly appreciated in the hospitality industry”.

Rodríguez Mora -who has been in charge of the pub’s kitchen for 2 years- created a menu in which you can find different Spanish tapas alongside popular British classics and a combination in harmony of both gastronomies into one plate, with popular dishes such as the Tapa of Minted Lamb Skewer served with Homemade Romesco Sauce or the Roast Salmon Fillet served with Patatas Bravas, Chickpeas and Fine Beans, among others.

Hotels, pubs and other establishments and tourism leaders from 23 European countries have been nominated and the finalists will be announced in the coming weeks after the jury deliberation. The winners from each of the 50 categories will be chosen among all finalists after a public voting process.
