For the results of probably the county’s finest culinary competition for 2017/18, please click here


The Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards is an annual competition aimed at celebrating all that is great about local food and drink, recognising excellence within the county’s dining and drinking venues and rewarding those who work so hard within the culinary sector.

Launched in the spring each year, the Awards attract hundreds of entries from restaurants, pubs, chefs, cafés and producers as well as nominations and recommendations from the public and following seven months of judging – including tasting panels, mystery shopping visits, cook-offs and public voting – the competition culminates in a spectacular Awards Dinner in the autumn at which the results in all categories are announced.

Last year’s Awards Dinner took place on 15th November at Royal & Derngate, Northampton

For details of the results, please visit our ‘News’ page.

The 2018/19 Awards will be launched in the spring, with more details coming soon.
