For 2024, as well as long-standing categories, such as Best Café, Best Pub, Best Bar and Best Country Pub / Restaurant, there is a new category for this year – Best Curry.

And a new award will also be handed out – the Marketing Derby Innovation Award – which will be given to the most innovative food and drink business in Derby.

And, as always, an award will be presented on the night recognising Outstanding Achievement.

Representatives from each sponsor will judge their category, which involves ‘mystery shopping’ at all three finalists and scoring against defined criteria.
