Penarth’s well-known Glebe Street crêperie, “The Crêpe Escape“, has –  for the first time – won an award at annual Welsh Food Awards. 

In last night’s awards ceremony The Crepe Escape – which was founded, and is run by, Alison Jones –  won the coveted title “Dessert Outlet of the Year”.

She said “Wow! I am still in shock! We won a Welsh Food Award!!! So proud of my amazing hard working team.”

“Thanks to my wonderful family and friends and most of all our customers, without you we wouldn’t exist! Thank you.”

No stranger to picking up awards, James Sommerin of Restaurant JS on Penarth Esplanade collected two last night – one for “Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year” and the other for “Chef of the Year”.

The title of “Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year” went to Restaurant James Sommerin – which is based on Penarth Esplanade.

Mr Sommerin himself also received the award for “Chef of the Year” .
