Finalists for first Northern Hospitality Awards announced

The finalists for the first ever Northern Hospitality Awards have been revealed.

Organised by the company behind the Northern Restaurant and Bar Show, they are the first awards of their kind dedicated to the hospitality industry in the North of England.

Around 250 guests and shortlisted competitors will attend a black-tie dinner at Manchester's Lowry hotel on 27 March to find out who has won.

Tom Hetherington, managing director of event organiser Moorfield Media, said: "We've been delighted with the quality and quantity of applications and it really proves the passion of the industry in the region."

Battling for the Best Restaurant accord will be Anthony's in Leeds; Northcote Manor near Blackburn; The Star at Harome, North Yorkshire; L'Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria; and the Yorke Arms, Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
