time and leisure awards 2019

T&L Food and Culture Awards winners announced

Our readers have spoken and following a record breaking 15,000 votes cast, we can now reveal this year’s winners of the Food and Culture Awards 2019…

The Food and Culture Awards, sponsored by Bedford Insurance, and now in their ninth year, have become a leading accolade for the region. They aim to champion local businesses and continue to shine a light on the best restaurants, cafes, pubs, theatres, festivals and more. Hosted at the beautiful Hurlingham Club in Fulham, the event saw independent cafes rub shoulders with the Michelin-starred, and small community events built on creativity and passion stand by side with world famous attractions, all of which make south west London and Surrey such a vibrant place to live. The awards ceremony was presented by local culture ambassador Robin Hutchinson MBE and Celebrity MasterChef winner Angellica Bell, who were joined on stage by top chefs Adam Byatt and Robin Gill.
