Nominate your favourite eatery

Food-loving Borderers can nominate their favourite restaurants, pubs and cafés for The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year awards.

The esteemed awards champion local eateries and recognise great food and good service from across the UK, with the criteria that restaurants must be independently run and offer regional or local produce where possible.

Ten regional winners will be announced from the public nominations before The Good Food Guide judges crown their overall Readers’ Restaurant of the Year 2013.

Diners in the Borders can nominate their favourite restaurants online at www.thegoodfoodguide.co.uk/awards or by sending in a postcard, available in restaurants until April 23.

Everyone who submits a nomination will be automatically entered into a free prize draw for a meal for two.

Elizabeth Carter, consultant editor, The Good Food Guide, said: “The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year awards are a fantastic way to support local businesses in recognising great cooking and service at neighbourhood eateries across the UK.

“We really look forward to diners in the Borders getting behind their local restaurants and telling us about the places where they really love to eat in the region.”
