What's involved?

When you enter, you'll be visited - without notice - by one of our judges. They'll be looking out for where your products or ingredients come from, how well you communicate local sourcing to your customers, the quality of service, and assessing atmosphere, ambience and value for money at your establishment. If you're serving food and drink, they'll also be judging the quality of that too! Afterwards you'll receive an objective evalution about their experience.

If your business wins an award we'll send you a certificate, window sticker and a digital logo. We'll also promote you as an award-winning establishment on our website. Winning an award generates great press and media coverage for your business, and most importantly it conveys the quality of your establishment to your customers.
