The Hampshire Life Food and Drink Awards 2012 sponsored by Colten Care

The Hampshire Life Food and Drink Awards are our way of allowing our readers to recognise those in the industry that are going above and beyond expectations when it comes to producing and serving local food and drink. They celebrate the very best of Hampshires producers, restaurants, tea shops, pubs and farm shops dedicated to supporting the countys food production industry.

Every year myself and our judges are overwhelmed by the response from our readers and it is incredibly difficult to narrow it down to just three nominees per category, let alone find an over all winner and this awards has been no different. I am absolutely thrilled for those that have won but the real prize is knowing that they have been commended by our readers and the general public so congratulations to all who were involved in making yet another fantastic awards ceremony.

Elizabeth Barnett, Editor

The ceremony took place on Thursday 23rd August at Four Seasons Hampshire Hotel and played host to 200 guests including finalists, sponsors and local VIPS. After a champagne reception, guests were treated to a three-course locally sourced meal before the all important awards ceremony presented by BBC Radio Solents Georgie Windsor.
