This month we are delighted to announce the winners of the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Awards 2016. The Grand Final, which took place in November, didn’t disappoint in delivering an all-round great celebration of our vibrant food and drinks scene. Hosted at Myhotel in Brighton, the awards evening was presented by Andrew Kay of Latest, and Allison Ferns of BBC Sussex. Drinks were sponsored by Ridgeview Wine Estate, Blackdown Artisan Spirits and The Beer Collective.

Director of the awards, Nick Mosley said, “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.” We’re excited to see what their plans hold for 2017…
