The FADAs are the biggest food and drink awards in the region, recognising the best local restaurants, bars and retailers. More than 600 businesses have been nominated this year from across South West London and Surrey with 15 awards up for grabs in 2016, with a Winner, Highly Commended and Commended in each category.
Created to support the local industry, these successful awards create awareness of local businesses and table talk amongst our readers, inspiring them to try new places. They have become recognised as key to promoting the quality on offer and helping businesses to increase their customer base. The PR coverage in our special edition in December as well as our digital media will help to further promote those recognised and involved on the day.
You will be greeted with a glass of bubbles before teasing your taste buds with produce from our selection of amazing tasting stations. Guests will continue to enjoy networking and making new connections with like-minded business owners, chefs, mixologists and producers from across the region whilst being entertained by live music.

Exclusively foodie 'The awards are your chance to rub shoulders with leading local chefs and food and drink connoisseurs and this year we have a very special guest, Antonio Carluccio, to help celebrate our 6th Anniversary year.'
Antonio Carluccio ‘The T&L Food & Drink Awards help local restaurants very much. They praise those who have the best quality and they inform the readers of the best local restaurants. That’s important.’
Eric Lanlard Cake Boy ‘I have been living in south west London for 25 years and the quality of food is getting better and better. There is so much choice. The T&L Food & Drink Awards are a good guide for consumers.’
Adam Byatt Trinity and Saturday Kitchen ‘The awards have reached such popularity in attendance and with the public that it’s a sure sign of people’s confidence in the standard of restaurants in south London.’
Al Crisci The Clink in Sutton ‘I love the awards. I come every year. The awards are about supporting local businesses and they give people a boost. The recognition that local restaurants receive is great. When we won Restaurant of the Year last year it really helped us. It has helped change people’s attitudes to ex-offenders.’
Michael Underwood TV Presenter and finalist in Celebrity Masterchef 2012 ‘The awards just keep growing and growing. The best thing for me personally is that the awards uncover gems in your local area. These are the places you should be going as the food and drink are of such high quality. When you have a young family, it’s great to know the restaurants that embrace families.’
