Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards 2016 held at Chesterfield College and hosted by Mich Turner. Best newcomer 2016 - Lilypad cafe.

The prestigious awards, organised by Destination Chesterfield, recognise the very best food, drinks, service and venues in the town.

A total of 26 businesses have been shortlisted across 10 categories, with Casa Hotel, Junction Bar, Bottle & Thyme and The Lilypad Café being nominated across multiple categories. Cocina at Casa Hotel has once again been nominated for the coveted Restaurant of the Year 2017 title.

Dominic Stevens, Destination Chesterfield manager, said: “The awards are now in their fifth year and more popular than ever. Each year it gets more and more difficult to narrow the nominations down to just three finalists in each category. It’s great to see so many first-time finalists, reflecting the growth and diversity of Chesterfield’s food and drink scene.”
