Thanks to everyone who nominated venues to help us choose the best waterside pub, restaurant or cafe across the East Midlands.
We're delighted to announce the winners which were awarded at our Annual Public Meeting in November - congratulations to all our finalists:
Best waterside cafe - Boathouse Cafe, Beeston Marina
Runner up - King's Lock Tearooms, Aylestone, Leicester
Runner up - The Old Wharf Tearoom, Hickling Basin
Best waterside pub / restaurant - The White Horse, Birstall
Runner up - Pillings Boathouse, Quorn
Runner up - The Ferry Boat, Church Laneham
We received over 700 nominations for over 50 venues across the East Midlands. Shortlisted finalists were visited by "mystery shoppers" with each venue judged on their food and drink, service and value and, most importantly, how they make the most of their waterside setting.
