Yorkshire's Independent Restaurant Guide

Food Awards

If a tyre company can make a big name for itself sponsoring restaurant awards, then why not an accountancy firm sponsoring aspiring food businesses?

Accountants Garbutt + Elliott launched their first awards in 2018. Today they have announced the shortlist for this year’s ‘entrepreneurial food businesses’.  The judging panel includes the respected York food blogger York on a Fork and Yorkshire chef Stephanie Moon.

Winners will be announced on 7th March at a do at York’s Castle Museum. The shortlist has some cracking local businesses, many I had never come across. Here’s the shortlist:
