Waitrose to open nominations for its Good Food Guide Readers Restaurant of the Year Awards
Waitrose has announced plans to open the nomination period for its Good Food Guide Readers Restaurant of the Year awards next month.
The annual awards invite the public to nominate their favourite neighbourhood dining establishments across ten different UK regions. The criteria states that restaurants should be independently run and offer regional or local produce where possible.
Ten regional winners will be announced based on the public nominations before the Good Food Guide judges declare their overall Readers’ Restaurant of the Year 2015.
Elizabeth Carter, consultant editor, The Waitrose Good Food Guide, said: "It’s such a triumph for a restaurant to win one of our regional Reader Restaurant of the Year awards, for they are nominated by their own customers. These awards give our Good Food Guide readers the opportunity to bring their favourite restaurants to our attention. I think it’s a fantastic way to highlight the wonderful and varied restaurants, pubs and cafés we have around the country."
With over 39,000 nominations received last year, Delifonseca in Liverpool clinched the coveted top-spot to win the overall award of The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year 2014.
Delifonseca’s Candice Fonseca said: “We are all in pleasurable shock at winning this award from The Good Food Guide, especially as we were in the company of other great shortlisted restaurants. We always try and put our customers first so it's fantastic when they make their voices heard in such a brilliant way. We all love what we do but this adds icing to the cake.”
The nomination period will run from 3 March to 12 May 2014. The ten regional winners will be announced at the end of June and with the overall winner being confirmed in September.
