Shortlist Announced

T&L is thrilled to announce the shortlist for this year’s Food & Drink Awards. Our shortlist features the top 92 local establishments who received the most votes from our readers.

Between April and July, we asked our readers to vote for their favourite restaurants and suppliers. And, responding to our call, they cast a massive number of votes for 571 establishments from Dorking to Fulham and everywhere in between across 12 categories. The shortlist are those businesses who really stood out from the rest and go forward as finalists for this year’s awards ceremony.

And from this list we will be revealing – in each category – the winner, highly commended and commended at a stunning prize-giving ceremony on 11 September. Until that date, this information is highly confidential and a closely guarded secret.

The ticketed Awards ceremony and networking event, this year to be held at the prestigious Hurlingham Club, has become a highlight of the foodies’ calendar. Places are hotly contended for the ceremony itself, let alone the prizes. Tickets are available here.

T&L Food & Drink Awards are a real celebration of the quality and diversity of food and drink across south west London and Surrey and give readers the chance to support their local establishments.
