Alimentum Restaurant in Cambridge, renowned for its affordable, ethical, award-winning food was placed runner up in the prestigious Observer Food Monthly Best Restaurants in Great Britain Awards recently, joining The Fat Duck at Bray in the Southern area selections. Moro in London took the overall prize – as voted by readers of the Guardian / Observer titles.
The online review says simply “Gorgeous menus using organic and locally sourced produce.”
And in August The Sunday Telegraphs Jasper Gerard voted Alimentum one of his top 50 summer restaurants in the UK after dining at the restaurant in July
“…This French classic is rarely executed with much panache in England, but this is as delicious as I’ve tasted… there is plenty of gastro promise here and I heartily recommend it.”

Speaking about the influential recognition the restaurant has achieved of late, owner John Hudgell commented “This is just superb recognition of all that we are striving to achieve at the restaurant. To be placed as a runner up alongside Heston Blumenthal and his team has made everyone here feel a little bit special – and rightly so! And Jasper Gerard doesn’t pull any punches either so we’re obviously doing lots of things right.
August has been quite a month for us as we’ve also just received news that we’ve been shortlisted for another RSPCA Award – having picked up the Innovation Award in 2008 we have this year been nominated in the Independent Restaurant category and are looking forward to the awards night on October 7th.
