It's almost time to reveal the region's top culinary awards

Our SponsorsOur Sponsors

We are delighted to reveal the name of the hotels, restaurants and inns that have been setting the pace in the North West hospitality industry.

These are the establishments which will be waiting with bated breath to see if they are among the winners during the biggest night in the region’s culinary calendar.

It’s not long to wait. On October 27, the Hilton Hotel in Manchester’s Deansgate will be packed with the movers and shakers from Lancashire and the Lakes – all eager to discover who has won the Lancashire Life & Cheshire Life Food & Drink Awards.

This glittering event is backed by some of the region’s top companies and, once again, we are delighted to have the award-winning family brewer, Robinsons, as our main sponsor.

To give you a taster of what lies ahead, this month we are publishing the shortlist of candidates for the 2014 awards.

They have been selected by an independent panel of judges, including award-winning caterer Rosemary Watts, Cheshire Life editor Louise Taylor-Allen, Lancashire Life food writers Philippa James and Ray King, food consultant Trevor Stone, and Lancashire Life editor Roger Borrell.

They have been visiting hotels, restaurants and dining pubs throughout the region to find the north west’s top performers. The result of their deliberations will be revealed at this gala black-tie evening. It’s a night of passion, drama and, above all great fun.

 

 

The Hilton is offering a double room and breakfast rate of £129. Please quote code GCLIR when booking.
