The county’s most coveted food, drink and hospitality awards will this year be held at The Blue Room, at The Lawn on Monday November 8th. This is an in person event but on a smaller scale than our gala dinners as we build to a full scale event once again in 2022. Due to the smaller numbers we can accommodate, invitations to the three top nominated businesses in each category will be extended.
