The YEP Oliver Awards are changing… and for the better. – we want to make sure our awards are always one step ahead. So, as we embark on a new decade of the awards, we have looked carefully at our categories and we’ve listened to the very people these awards were set up to salute – the restaurateurs – to make them even more relevant to the modern era.
Perhaps the biggest change this year is that we are pleased to announce the arrival of three industry experts, who will act as judges and will be working with us throughout the nomination, shortlisting and judging process. More details about our judges listed in the category section of this website.
New categories this year include Best Brewery & People’s Oliver. We have also overhauled some of our longstanding categories, launching a new Rural/Hotel category and splitting the previous Cafe/Bar into two new, distinct awards. As usual, we look forward to receiving your nominations.
