Judging of the Finalists is now underway and will be completed by 31st October.. Unlike shortlisting which is a paper exercise each Finalist gets to meet the judges face to face. The meeting gives them the chance to get across their passion and skills for their business in their own environment. The Best Place to Eat of course is being judged by public vote. After just 5 days the 1000th vote was cast and as voting is open until midnight on Saturday 21st there is still time to get your supporters and friends to cast their votes. Look out for the details of the Finalists in all Categories which will be listed on this site after the closing date.
