Now in their eighth year, these annual food and drink awards celebrate the local heroes that make up our thriving food and drinks scene across south west London and Surrey. Readers of Time & Leisure magazine vote in their thousands to recognise and reward those businesses doing great things in our communities, from fine dining to best retailer.

Voting for the 2018 awards has now closed. The award winner shortlist will be announced very shortly.

Join us for an afternoon of celebration as we announce who has been
crowned the best of south west London and north Surrey


New for 2018

Food, drink and culture go hand in hand in our readers’ leisure time. It’s no wonder as we are blessed with such a great array of festivals, events, venues and community initiatives across south west London. From local projects that bring people together – hand-made with passion and creative skill, to brilliantly produced festivals and world-class venues, there is so much to enjoy. These awards will highlight and recognise our readers’ favourites no matter how big or small they may be.

Fabulous Food & Drink

Continuing to support the local food & drink industry

Our readers’ number one leisure time topic of interest is food and drink and in 2017 you voted for a whopping 751 different businesses.  From the Michelin starred to a one person bakery, your family-friendly local restaurant to your much loved local butcher or cheese specialist,  these awards not only help us to shout about the best but also help those commended to prosper.

Over 20 years at the heart of local communities

Time & Leisure is the local luxury lifestyle publisher covering south west London and Surrey. Local community and aspirational living have been at the heart of everything we’ve created over the last 20 years. Our flagship is Time & Leisure magazine and we publish 106,000 magazines every single month packed with local content to inspire and inform readers. We are proud to have earned their trust through editorial excellence with relevant, localised content. We have been chosen as media partner for many events across the region, and adding culture to these awards in 2018 further demonstrates our readers’ love of local life and commitment to this sector.

The success of our Food and Drink Awards has seen them grow from less than 100 businesses nominated in year one, to 751 last year. The event has grown to over 300 attendees, and this year we return to the fabulous Hurlingham Club, SW6 on September 10th to celebrate and connect consumers and businesses.
