Local cafe is a Regional Winner in Britain’s Best Cafe Competition!


It’s eggciting times for local cafe – Dotty’s Old Town Cafe, run by Graham and Elizabeth Rowcliffe in Swindon.

Dotty’s Old Town Cafe has been voted Britain’s Best Cafe in the South West region in the national competition organised by SIG Roofing by receiving the most public votes in the area.

Dotty’s Old Town Cafe has not only won the regional award but they now go forward to the final stage of the competition for the national title of Britain’s Best Cafe 2017.

The competition is recognition of how everyday just some of the UK’s unsung heroes, our Great British cafes, help the nation to get through their working day – courtesy of the famous Bacon Buttie, legendary British Breakfast or a tasty lunch. And Swindon’s local winner, Dotty’s Old Town Cafe, has really earned its place as a Regional Winner in the competition.

With a record 500 plus cafes in the running and tens of thousands of votes cast both online and in SIG Roofing’s branches around the country, qualification for the final round is a fantastic achievement.

SIG Roofing’s local branch is based in Swindon and Branch Manager Mark Carey said: “The public has really taken the search for Britain’s Best Cafe to its heart and we’re delighted to see Dotty’s Old Town Cafe making the final.

“Now they will go to a celebration lunch in London with the other 13 regional winners on Thursday 9 November to see who is crowned with the national title. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for them to be the National Winner, and if they come out on top they’ll also win a once in a lifetime luxury holiday for two to celebrate their success.”

SIG Roofing’s Marketing Manager, Janine Brady, says the competition has been full of great stories about local businesses.

Janine commented: “Our customers are among the most loyal users of Britain’s cafes so it seemed only right that we should support the local cafes that help them through the working day with great food and cheerful service.

“Dotty’s Old Town Cafe is one of the nation’s very best and we wish them luck when the national winner is announced later this month.”

Dotty’s Old Town Cafe is now eagerly anticipating the final result, they won’t have long to wait as they head to London to toast their success and find out if they will be crowned the National Winner on Thursday 9 November.
