Observer Food Monthly Awards 2018

Vote for us!

It’s that time of year when we ask you to vote for us in The Observer Food Monthly Awards. Last year, you voted and we were awarded a London runners-up place for the fourth year running. We would love your help to make it five in a row.

Please vote for us.

You can vote by completing the short form on The Observer’s website. You do not need to register with The Guardian/Observer in order to vote and it will just take a minute of your time. All you need to provide is an email address and you can choose to opt out of all marketing emails from The Guardian/Observer.

Every entry goes into a prize draw for a chance to win holidays, food hampers, hotel stays, meals out, Champagne and even a kitchen knife which will hopefully be sharper than ours.

The Best Independent Retailer Award aims to reward good local businesses. Now entering our sixth year, we have provided a home-grown, local alternative to supermarkets and chains such as Majestic or Oddbins.

We’ve welcomed loads of customers, their dogs, bumps, buggies and grumpy adolescents to our free Friday pourings. We’ve suggested birthday, Christmas and Easter wines and provided relationship, bereavement and career counselling as well as a bespoke speech writing service. We’ve let you in the shop before we’ve opened and after we’ve closed. We’ve chased you up the road with your forgotten credit cards and sold you unforgettable wine. We’ve cheered you on throughout your Marathon training and left you alone during Lent. And we’ve done all this with two staff, one of whom has a proper job elsewhere. Your vote, and this award, would once again mean a lot to us.

Please take a minute (and it really will take just a minute) to give us your vote. Thank you.
