Nominate us for the Good Food Guide


If you enjoy what we do here, then we’d love it if you could nominate us for the Good Food Guide’s 2023 Best Local Restaurant Award.

Best Local Restaurant

The Guide has launched its annual search for the nation’s favourite restaurants.

These diner-nominated Best Local Restaurant awards celebrate the brilliant contribution that neighbourhood restaurants make to communities like ours here in Bampton.

Chance to win a £250 voucher

As a nominator, you could also be in with a chance of winning a £250 restaurant voucher or one of five annual memberships to The Good Food Guide Club.

If you think we meet the following criteria, please nominate us:

  • Independently run; owned by the chef or a hands-on proprietor
  • Offers regularly changing, seasonal menus at affordable prices
  • Demonstrates strong relationships with nearby suppliers
  • Rooted in the community
  • Offers at least two dinner services a week
  • Gives customers a genuine, warm welcome.

Closing date

The nomination period runs for six weeks until Wednesday, May 24 at 11:59pm.

The Guide’s Editor, Elizabeth Carter says: “The simple formula of a kitchen that cooks fresh to order is the very principle on which The Good Food Guide was founded.

Creative, memorable food

“We have always maintained that the best restaurants offer creative, memorable food based on quality, seasonal and local produce. In other words, no pretensions or gimmicks, just first-class food cooked from ingredients deeply rooted in the region. A commitment to their community and a strong relationship with local suppliers is what makes a restaurant truly local.”

Shortlist & winners

Once nominations close, The Good Food Guide’s editors will reveal a shortlist.

A restaurant audit and anonymous inspections for the front-runners will follow. The regional winners and the overall Best Local Restaurant will be announced at the end of June.
