The Brighton Food & Drink Awards 2016

Congrats to all of the winners and runners up in the Brighton Food & Drink Awards held at MyHotel last night, which was made up of 17 categories and judged by media and business people passionate about both food and drink, and representatives from the food festival.

Festival director Nick Mosley said  “Brighton & Hove truly punches above its weight when it comes to restaurants, bars, pubs, cafés, hotels and – increasingly – food and drink production. Whilst we can’t lay claim to a Michelin-starred restaurant, we do have an incredibly broad range of hospitality businesses from fine dining and bistro to back street boozers and street food style outlets. For a city of our size, we have a hospitality sector that is unmatched in the UK, and is the envy of towns and cities across the country.”
