The annual awards celebrate the best restaurant and bar operators based in the North of England.
The awards include the special award category which, in the past, has included Simon Rogan of L’Enclume, Tim Bacon and Jeremy Roberts of Living Ventures, Paul Askey of the Art School and Stephen Miles of the Radisson Edwardian.
Thom Hetherington, CEO of awards organisers Holden Media, said: “Judging these awards doesn’t get any easier. The number of new hospitality business launching in the North is incredible, and of course the established names aren’t resting on their laurels either so it’s a battle to keep up.”
“The constant innovation and increase in both choice and standards is wonderful for the Northern dining public. Equally though we think it is important to recognise the incredible graft, commitment and talent of the people who make it all happen, and that’s why we research and publish the NRB Top Fifty each year.”
