The Cheshire Life Food & Drink Awards will celebrate the industry's best

Each year we celebrate our fantastic food offerings from the North West at our Food and Drink Awards ceremony. The awards recognise cuisine, service, ambience and individual qualities of the establishments which the panel of independent judges deem worthy of recognition. The grand finale of the Cheshire and Lancashire Life Food and Drink Awards is the awards celebration dinner which will be staged at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on 25th October 2011.


Local restaurateurs and hoteliers gather at this Oscar style ceremony to find out if they have won one of the industrys most prestigious accolades. Winners from each of the 15 categories are announced on the night and presented with a commemorative Villeroy and Boch plate, a wall plaque and magnum of Champagne. Of course, all coverage of the event is carried in Cheshire and Lancashire Life magazines.
