Staff at the Littleton, Walsall College’s restaurant and cocktail bar, are celebrating after being awarded the Gold Standard Award from the Best of Walsall.
The Littleton, opened by Walsall College as part of its £11m business and sports hub, combines luxurious surroundings and friendly service, with a lively, vibrant atmosphere.
Headed up by AA rosette winning chefs, Steve Biggs and Paul Ingleby, the 40-seat bistro offers a contemporary menu of British inspired cuisine, created using high-quality fresh food focusing on locally sourced ingredients.
The Gold Standard Award recognises the continued outstanding customer feedback the awarded restaurant receives on the Best of Walsall website.
The award is the latest in a series of accolades and recognition the Littleton has received for its outstanding service since it first opened in 2015. Last year, the upmarket restaurant and cocktail bar was named the No. 1 British restaurant in Walsall on TripAdvisor.
The Littleton also received two national Business of the Year awards, which are organised by thebestof, a national marketing organisation committed to raising the profile of local, independent and recommended businesses serving areas across the UK.
The restaurant came 2nd in the ‘Restaurant of the Year’ category and was placed 51st in the whole of the UK.
Head Chef at the Littleton, Steve Biggs said: “We are delighted to receive the Gold Standard Award, based on outstanding customer reviews. We would not have been awarded this accolade without the hard work and dedication of our staff, who work tirelessly to ensure our customers enjoy an exceptional dining experience.”
Littleton Supervisor, Emma Huckle, said: “We’ve received continuous 5 star reviews since we opened. We’re delighted that diners are coming from all parts of the West Midlands and beyond. We see an eclectic mix of customers coming to the Littleton, from business people enjoying lunch and after-work drinks, to families and friends celebrating birthdays and evening meals.”
Trip Advisor commenters have described the food as ‘exquisite’, ‘beautiful’ and ‘well presented’. Staff could not be more helpful, and many say they have recommended the bistro to friends and family.
The Littleton, located in The Hub next to Walsall College’s Wisemore Campus, is also creating chefs of the future through its apprenticeship programme.
In addition, The Hub includes a 40-station gym, a multi-purpose sports hall, dance and fitness studios, spa, sports training and injury clinic, a business incubation centre for start-up businesses, as well as conference and event facilities.
