The Staff Canteen

The Good Food Guide 2014 has announced the regional winners of its Readers’ Restaurant of the Year Awards.

The ten regional winners this year are: East – The Leaping Hare, Stanton, Suffolk London – Boqueria Tapas, Brixton Midlands – Turners, Birmingham North East – Eric’s Restaurant, Huddersfield North West – Delifonseca, Brunswick Dock, Liverpool Northern Ireland – Balloo House, Killinchy Scotland – The Gardener’s Cottage, Edinburgh South East – Purefoy Arms, Preston Candover, Hampshire South West – The Seahorse, Dartmouth, Devon Wales – Sosban, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire.

 This year’s awards have seen 39,000 nominations from members of the public voting for their favourite local, independently-run eatery.

Consultant editor of The Good Food Guide, Elizabeth Carter said: “These ten winners are all first-class local eateries and should be praised for doing what they are doing so well – congratulations to all of them. With such a strong bunch of regional champions, choosing the overall winner of The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year 2014 is going to be tougher than ever.”

The winners of the regional heats are chosen based on the most nominations combined with the establishments being of a high enough standard to feature in The Good Food Guide. To qualify for nomination restaurants, pubs and cafes need to be independently run and offer regional or local produce where possible. Of the ten regional winners, one will go on to be named The Good Food Guide Reader’s Restaurant of the Year 2014 at an awards ceremony in central London in June.
