We are thrilled to announce this year's finalists for the Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards

The Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards, to be held at Haselbury Mill at Crewkerne on October 17, will champion the county's local food and drink heroes. We'll be celebrating the good and the great from the region's food & drink industry including local producers & suppliers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers, and people who care about the countryside and the future of our local environment.

Our editor Charlotte Skidmore says, "Somerset is perhaps best known for its fantastic selection of places to eat and drink, great produce and commendable producers, who we want to recognise through our Food & Drink Awards."
