The Hampshire Life Food & Drink Awards returned for the eleventh year and the 2016 event was bigger than ever.

Taking place on 23rd November at The Elvetham Hotel in Hartley Wintney, the 2016 awards welcomed more categories and provided a chance for more people to celebrate their successes with us.

These awards recognise the importance of the Hampshire food and drink industry and support the local food and drink businesses including suppliers and producers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers and people who care about our countryside and the future of our local environment.
