How to vote

Lincolnshire Life County Cuisine Awards 2013/14 – ‘Taste of Excellence’
We invite you to vote for your favourite café, tea room, pub, bistro or restaurant in Lincolnshire!

This is the sixteenth year of the search for the best eateries in the county and we rely on you, our readers, and customers of the many hundreds of establishments in the county to vote.

Lincolnshire is well known for our excellent local produce and we seek to recognise where this is being enjoyed by customers in the best eating establishments.

The annual competition is supported by sponsorship from Select Lincolnshire, House of Townend wine merchants, Heart of Gold Homegrown Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil and Lincoln College.

There are three categories where you can vote; Heart of Gold Best Coffee Shop or Tea Room; Select Lincolnshire Best Pub and House of Townend Best Restaurant. Every nomination received will be entered into a prize draw to win dinner for two at one of the winning establishments from last year’s competition.

The top three nominated establishments in each category will be visited anonymously by our judging panel between October and December to decide the overall winner.

We shall also be holding another Young Chef competition in conjunction with Lincoln College when three student finalists will take part to cook a three-course meal under the scrutiny of a judging panel.

The culmination of the competition is an awards presentation which will be held early in 2014. Last year we were part of a glittering evening with Select Lincolnshire at the Lincolnshire Food and Drink Awards 2013. The Doubletree by Hilton was the venue for the awards which celebrated the best in county food and produce with a magnificent five course meal, entertainment and guest speaker Paralympian Sophie Wells OBE.

Nomination forms will be despatched to eateries around the county in May. If you are an eatery in Lincolnshire and wish to be included in our mailing list please send your details to:

Remember to tell us which category you would like to enter: Cafés and Tea Shops, Best Pub or Best Restaurant.

Nomination forms will also appear in summer issues of Lincolnshire Life or download by following the link below, but remember we need all your votes no later than September 30th 2013.
