A gallery of your favourite places


Below are your East Midlands recommendations – your favourite restaurants, most-treasured pubs, dearest delis and choicest cafes. Each month, we’re giving away a £50 meal out to the best entry. Scroll down past the gallery to enter. Please vote for your favourites below by clicking the ❤️ symbols.


Send your tips and enter the monthly competition via the form below – please include a food pic, venue pic or selfie taken in the place you’re recommending. We’ll share your recommendations on social media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) and they will also help us to choose the next Great Food Awards Shortlist. We’ll announce the winner here and on social media on the last day of every month.


Last month’s winner was Phil’s recommendation of The Chequered Skipper in Ashton near Oundle, supplied with this picture of John enjoying his lunch!
