BIRMINGHAM FOOD, DRINK & HOSPITALITY AWARDS 2016

EAGERLY AWAITED SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED FOR THE FIRST BIRMINGHAM FOOD, DRINK & HOSPITALITY AWARDS 2016

Sure to be one of the highlights of the city’s social calendar and billed as one of the main events of the year, the ceremony will certainly reward the most innovative and unique offerings of the city. Not only celebrating talent, but innovation, especially to those establishments flying the flag for the independent sector.

However, before that glorious night arrives, the bon viveurs of the city’s culinary scene have had to come together to cast a critical eye over more than 350 nominations.

The fantastic panel of judges includes esteemed restaurant critic Paul Fulford, Editor of Dine Birmingham Ahmed Ahmed, TV presenter and beer sommelier Marverine Cole, hospitality expert Conrad Brunton and Managing Director of Hollywood Monster & CEO of Birmingham City Ladies Football Club, Tim Andrews.

The panel, who have probably visited every establishment between them, have sifted through the phenomenal number of nominations that have poured in from all over Birmingham.
The judges have done their part, now the fates of the hopeful nominees lie in the hands of the brimming Birmingham public.
We as a restaurant are thrilled to have been shortlisted for 4 categories and would be delighted if our guests would take the time to vote for us.
