Good Food Guide nominations open

THE Good Food Guide is once again inviting submissions for its Readers’ Restaurant of the Year awards, with this year’s nomination period opening on Monday 3rd March 2014.

The respected awards celebrate great food and service at independent restaurants, pubs and cafés from around the country. 

Last year Delifonseca Dockside scooped the national title.

The annual awards invite the public to nominate their favourite neighbourhood dining establishments across ten different UK regions, with the criteria that restaurants should be independently run and offer regional or local produce where possible. Ten regional winners will be announced based on the public nominations before the Good Food Guide judges declare their overall Readers’ Restaurant of the Year 2015.

With over 39,000 nominations received last year there is no doubt that the awards do capture the public's imagination.

On winning the award last year, Candice Fonseca, from Delifonseca, said: "We are all in pleasurable shock at winning this award from The GoodFood Guide, especially as we were in the company of other great shortlisted restaurants. We always try and put our customers first so it's fantastic when they make their voices heard in such a brilliant way. We all love what we do but this adds icing to the cake."

To take part in the awards restaurants can encourage their diners to nominate them online, here  or by making official postcards available in their restaurants during the nomination period -  3rd March until 12th May 2014. 

The ten regional winners will be announced at the end of June and the overall winner of The Waitrose Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year will be announced in September.

Consider the consequences! Delifonseca won last time then closed their superb delicatessen in Stanley Street! That's gratitude for you!

That place is closed? Damn, I got a few good Christmas hampers from there. They made good alternative Christmas presents for people who don't want 'things' to clutter up their house. A nice pleasurable eating experience instead.

From the website; NEWS FLASH!!!! The original Delifonseca on Stanley St has been downsized and converted into a wine bar with a mini deli counter for take-out lunches and eat-in deli nibbles. To all of you who may have been as fond of the original deli shop as we were, we apologise for its demise but once the foodhall at Delifonseca Dockside opened all the serious shoppers went there. So with regret instead we have created the best wine bar in town. Somewhere to drink great drinks wines, cocktails, beers or coffees whatever the time of day. Where the setting is vintage cool and the service paramount.

The Stanley St one has NOT closed! They've made the deli part into a bar to relax before your meal in the restaurant which is still upstairs.
