Celebrating the best food and drink establishments in Manchester, the Food and Drink Festival Awards shortlist is made up of restaurants, bars and pubs seen as the region’s best by judges.

Stockport businesses in the shortlist include:

  • Foodie Friday – Best Food & Drink Pop Up Event
  • Bakers Vault, Stockport Market Place – Pub of the Year
  • Magnet, Town Centre – Pub of the Year
  • Indian Tiffin Room – Casual Restaurant of the Year

Councillor Kate Butler, Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council, said: “I hope everyone in Stockport will get behind these much deserved nominations and make sure they vote for their favourites.

“I am also delighted to see Foodie Friday included in the shortlist, as I have seen the hard work and passion that goes into making this monthly event such a huge success.

“The food and drink scene across Stockport is already great, and the likes of Where The Light Gets In opening later this year will really help seal our place on the gastronomic map.”
