Birmingham Hospitality Awards Host the Finest of the Midlands

BFDH Awards Judges

BFDH Awards Judges

Many luminaries from the Hospitality industry gathered at the Edgbaston Cricket Stadium Monday night to celebrate, reward and highlight the great work done within the city at places where people EAT DRINK and SLEEP.

The inaugural Birmingham Food Drink & Hospitality Awards was held on Monday 6th June at the prestigious sporting arena, which is making a name for itself by hosting high profile events. The event, hosted by celebrity TV personality and proud Brummie, Alison Hammond (pictured with James Day, editor of ETM Above) raced along at a brisk pace and the attendees were fabulously entertained.

The Awards are the first of their kind, including a plethora of categories celebrating everything from the best fine dining restaurants, Indian and Oriental restaurants, most popular street food to best chef, best restaurant manager and best food and drink blogger, to name a few.

Entertainment on the night included dance performances by ‘Desi Nach’ which kept the atmosphere filled with glee as well as the show girls who greeted people on the night with their long, slender feathers.

Our charity partner, Love Brum raised £2000 for Birmingham and District Deaf Children’s Society which was voted by the guests out of three proposed charities.

From the Michelin Star establishment Purnell’s who won two awards on the evening to Pop-Up Street food brand Low ‘N’ Slow, from the independent to the national brand of the people of Birmingham attended with a common goal, to create an atmosphere within the hospitality industry where the city is known for its’ quality and customer service, we can say with great confidence we have done ourselves and the city proud.

Big winners on the night were Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Hampton Manor both winning three awards and Michelin starred Purnell’s Restaurant winning Best Michelin and Best Chef for Glynn Purnell. A special commendation by the Judge’s went to Cheal’s of Henley.
