After a record 3,190 people made almost 7,000 nominations to name the winners of The Nottinghamshire Food and Drink Awards, celebrations were also in order for FHP’s retail and leisure team, who had 8 of their lettings in the line-up, 4 of which went on to become winners of their categories.

Amongst the many names celebrated throughout the evening were George’s Great British Kitchen, Volt nightclub, the Hockley Arts Club and Thai restaurant Zaap.

Having won the ‘Best New Venue’ category in 2015, George’s Great British Kitchen this year took the title for ‘Best City Centre Experience’, beating nominees Iberico and another FHP letting, Zaap – who incidentally won the award for ‘Best Asian’ restaurant, up against Tarn Thai who were also secured by FHP.

Volt nightclub had already been chosen as the best club in an earlier round of the Best Bar None Awards but then went on to be named as the overall Nottingham Best Bar None winner, beating the pub, restaurant and bar category winners: The Company Inn, Bistro Live and Cape respectively.

Hockley Arts Club and the eclectic choice of cocktails that have come to be associated alongside it took the award for the Best Drinks Venue, whilst three of the nominees for the best Deli/Café were FHP’s deals. Coffee roasters ‘200 Degrees’ and the ‘Ugly Bread Bakery’ came as runners up, whilst the winning title went to ‘The Cheese Shop’ in Flying Horse Walk, a scheme where FHP act as both managing and letting agents.

Jack Shakespeare of FHP’s Retail and Leisure team comments:

“It’s great to be part of such a successful team shaping the city we live in. Nottingham has had a great run of new operators opening in the city over the last 2 years, which is sure to continue with even more on the horizon with the development of intu Broadmarsh. The ever increasing creativity shown by local operators unlocking previously unloved sites in the city, such as The Hockley Arts Club, Boilermaker and the Herbert Kilpin is a testament to their quality.”

The Food and Drink awards were held on the June 22nd in partnership with the Nottingham Post.
