North Devon has an abundance of the most fantastic food, delicious drinks and superb hospitality.
With miles of stunning coastline and luscious countryside some of our eateries have gorgeous views we can indulge in while we dine.
Now is the chance to really sing the praises of all the people and places that help make North Devon such a special place.
The North Devon Journal has launched its Food, Drink & Tourism Awards 2017.
Our awards aim to showcase the range of amazing food, drink and hospitality we have in the area.
This is a fantastic opportunity for producers, retailers, chefs, publicans, hoteliers, baristas and many more to demonstrate their incredible work.
There are 10 categories within the awards which will cover all aspects of food, drink and tourism within in North Devon.
If you have had super service, a divine dinner or a delicious drink then now is your chance to really sing the praises of the businesses which provided them.
The winners will be announced and celebrated at a prestigious ceremony on Wednesday, October 11 at the Barnstaple Hotel.
You will be treated to a memorable evening full of entertainment, a sumptuous supper packed with locally sourced cuisine. There will even be a few surprises in store on the evening – that’s a closely guarded secret though, so you will have to wait and see what we have planned!
North Devon Journal editor Jim Parker said that the awards aim to “celebrate outstanding businesses” in the area.
He said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of the North Devon Journal Food, Drink and Tourism Awards 2017.
