The team at a Lindley restaurant are celebrating after being tipped for two top titles.
Eric’s restaurant has made the shortlist in this year’s Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards.
The annual awards put the spotlight on the best of Yorkshire’s food producers and innovators and are judged by a panel of industry experts.
These include chefs, retail industry experts, food writers and BBC Radio personality Nigel Barden.
The fine-dining eatery, which is based in Lidget Street, has been shortlisted in two categories. These are Best Use of Local Produce on a Menu and Best Yorkshire Afternoon Tea.
The winners in each will be decided following a visit by a mystery diner. He or she will assess the quality and presentation of the menu, staff knowledge and customer experience.
Eric Paxman, chef and proprietor, said: “These awards are recognised by many as Yorkshire’s ultimate celebration of food and drink.
“So we’re delighted to have been chosen as a finalist in two highly competitive categories.
“Our creative afternoon teas have proved really popular with our customers.
“We hope to demonstrate that in the next stage and at the same time show our commitment to using local suppliers.
“Huddersfield is home to a vast range of excellent food and drink producers, so my aim has always been to use as much local produce as possible on the menu.
Eric added that he and his staff are looking forward to the awards ceremony and wishes everyone the best of luck.
The winners will be revealed on October 15 at Pavilions of Harrogate.
Since opening in November 2010, the restaurant has received a number of accolades and awards. It is listed in the 2014 Good Food Guide and this year’s Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.
