Taste of Staffordshire Good Food Awards 2017

Warmest welcome... the finest dining... the tastiest flavours... the best cup of tea...

We want to offer our visitors and residents the very finest food and service, so each year we hold the Taste of Staffordshire & NFU Mutual Good Food Awards.

Restaurants, pubs, tea rooms, farm shops, brewers and local food producers compete for these prestigious awards.

They are judged for quality and excellence, and particularly their use of locally produced ingredients.

All of the food & drink businesses competing for the Good Food Awards are accredited by Taste of Staffordshire and have been visited by professionally qualified restaurant inspectors who judge all aspects of their visit including quality of food and drink, service, presentation and use of local produce.
