Manchester Food And Drink Festival toasts winners in its celebration of the region’s original, unique and fabulous talent…

The great and good of the food and drink scene gathered at the Lowry Hotel on Monday 8th October to celebrate the end of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival and to toast the winners of its prestigious awards.

Awards were made in 15 categories after public voting on the website and a stringent judging process by a panel of independent judges.

Of course, you can judge yourself below (between you and ourselves). We thought that Sam’s Chop House and The Oast House deserved a shout, however, we can’t argue with the winners in the same category.

Festival Director Siobhan Hanley comments:

“The standard of food and drink industry in Manchester continues to reach new heights. With new venues opening, and examples of innovation being seen all over the region, it has been a real delight for our judging team to review the best of the best. “

“It is proven that being nominated for these awards has long term economic benefits for the outlets and over the 15 years of the Festival more than 500 Greater Manchester businesses have benefitted in this way.”
