A RUNCORN restaurant is offering visitors a golden opportunity to bag themselves a sweet treat and £1,000 this Easter.

The Evenwood Farm Farmhouse Inns dining and carvery on Evenwood Close will be hiding a golden plate in the carvery deck, which will be handed out to lucky guests at random over the Easter period.

Each golden plate finder will also receive a free cake, baked in-house by Evenwood Farm’s.

Residents will have until Sunday, April 28 to visit Evenwood Farm and try their luck at finding the prized plate.

Pamela Crellin, general manager at the Evenwood Farm said: "As a family-focused restaurant we know that Easter is the perfect time to gather the family and feast together, and what better way to finish off a delicious carvery than with a sweet treat and the chance to win £1,000 cash!

"That’s why we’re giving away slices of our home-baked cakes this Easter to lucky diners and offering guests the chance to go for gold with our special Easter surprise.

"The team at Evenwood Farm are looking forward to handing out golden plates to lucky locals and putting a smile on their face this Easter!"
