The Yew Tree Cafe, based in Wootton Wawen’s craft centre, scooped the British Sandwich Association’s Sandwich Retailer of the Year at a prestigious ceremony held at the Lancaster London Hotel on May 17.
Cafe owner Sue Price-Whittle also won the Goddess Tuna category of UK Sandwich Designer of the Year 2012 with a Thai inspired Tuna Chiang Mai Wrap.
Sue said “We could not have won these awards without the support of my excellent team of staff, loyal customer base and the warm, friendly surroundings of the craft centre and its individual businesses.”
Undercover judges visited all nominees and finalist had to meet a number of tough criteria in presentation, atmosphere, facilities, cleanliness, innovation and customer service.
The cafe features cream teas, breakfast and lunches as well as Rachel’s Cupcakes, a fast growing business known locally for its wide variety of flavours.
