Awards 2022/23

How the winners will be selected
The top four vote winners in each category (Restaurant, Producer, Shop, Café, Street Food, Food Hero, Bakery) will make the shortlist. Multiple votes from individuals will be discarded. Once the shortlist has been created, our judges will select the winners. Businesses that won GFC awards last year are not eligible to be shortlisted this year (click here to see last year’s winners). Our aim is to showcase a broad range of independents and by not allowing a single business to win an award two years in a row, we go some way to achieving this aim.

The 2022/23 shortlist will be revealed at the end of June 2022.


The judging process
To make their decisions, our judges will visit or try the food & drink of every shortlisted business. They will eat – anonymously where possible – at all the pubs, cafés and restaurants. The final winners will be announced in September 2022.
