It is always an exciting high point of the year when judging for the Yorkshire Life Food & Drink Awards comes around again. It means we can catch up with our illustrious team of judges, not only to hear all their news but to discover who they feel are the most interesting potential movers and shakers on the Yorkshire hospitality scene. Our judges’ meetings are held at the celebrated Rudding Park in Harrogate where, over fine food suppers, we have thrashed out just who will make it onto this years’ shortlist.

This year has been especially interesting, as there have been many nominations from readers and our judges have been crisscrossing the county eating, drinking and staying their way through some really excellent places.

We are thrilled with our shortlist which represents some interesting new finds, along with some more established food businesses, and we can’t wait to announce the winners at our fabulous awards lunch on Monday, September 22nd at Rudding Park, Harrogate and we’d love you to join us if you can.

We welcome sponsors Seabrook Crisps

Ltd Bradford. Marketing director Kevin Butterworth, said: ‘We are really looking forward to being part of the awards this year because Yorkshire Life has championed food and drink in the county for so long.’
