OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION

This award is usually given to an individual who has stood out in some way in the industry, as a result of their hard work and dedication to their profession. Just being able to survive in the restaurant industry is something but the people put forward for this category are innovators and creative thinkers who take long hours, self-sacrifice and hard work in their stride. Entrants for this category can hail from any quarter. The recipient will be outstanding, elevating not just themselves but the people they work with, to new levels and therein proving an inspiration for others in the industry and those who want to become part of it.

OVERALL WINNER

Our final award of the night goes to the restaurant which has excelled during the previous year (and usually our awards, sometimes winning more than one category). All nominees are made eligible to win this award, which is down to the judge’s discretion and based on the overall dining experience and taking into account any other relevant background material. The results of this category are not revealed until the night itself but previous winners have proved themselves more than capable, often leading from the front in terms of maintaining high standards and innovation. We wish all of our shortlist nominees the best of luck and we will see you at the ceremony on March 6.
