Welcome to The Time & Leisure Food and Culture Awards.

Celebrating the best of local food and culture

The Time & Leisure Food and Culture Awards celebrated the best of our local restaurants, pubs and theatres at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in Fulham. The awards have been going strong for eight years, but this was our biggest and best yet with over 10,000 votes cast by our readers for businesses large and small.

Bringing together south west London and Surrey’s most famous and revered hotspots with smaller lesser known producers and newcomers, they are all much loved by the readers who nominated them.

Congratulations to all the businesses that were nominated in the 14 categories – this year being the first to include culture.

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 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. 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 help to shine a light on the best of the region. Find great interviews, recipes and stories on our table talk pages and be inspired to try somewhere new on our where to dine page.
