Food and Drink Awards

There is still time to enter this year’s Derbyshire Food and Drink Awards.

Councillor Kevin Parkinson, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “Every year our awards celebrate Derbyshire’s many excellent restaurants, pubs, cafes, and bistros which serve locally sourced food.”

Venues are judged on a number of criteria, with the quality of the food and drink, the customer service, and the amount of locally sourced produce on their menus.

The closing date for entrants is September 1 and for a nomination form contact Steph Walsh at Derbyshire County Council on 01629538464 or email

An awards evening will be held at Thornbridge Hall on Wednesday, 2 November.
