The Food Magazine Reader Awards 2014 shortlist have been announced, and we have been named as one of their finalists in their Best Restaurant Category!
In October and November, over 3,000 votes were cast by food readers for their favourite chefs, restaurants, cafes and products in the South West. The nominations have been counted and a shortlist drawn up. In categories where the voting was extremely close, the shortlist has been extended to a maximum of six nominees.
Shortlist voting is now open and will close on February 2, 2014, at midnight. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Yeo Valley HQ on February 24.
food editor Jo Rees said: ‘food readers clearly feel strongly about supporting their favourite local chefs and food businesses, and we’ve been blown away by the number of votes cast in the first round. It’s easy to underestimate how important winning an award like this is to the food businesses involved so we urge South West foodies to push their favourite in the shortlist through to the final three.’
I would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has voted to get us on to the Shortlist and we would really appreciate your Votes again to get us through to the final.
