Last call for UKs best Coffee Shop, Restaurant and Pub of the Year as entries pour in

A Pub in South Wales, a Coffee Shop in a 200 year old building and a Restaurant in Edinburgh are just some of the entries lined up to win the accolade of being Britain’s Best in the 2019 SME National Business Awards. 


The widely recognised SME National Business Awards recently announced brand new categories of Coffee Shop of the Year, Pub of the Year and Restaurant of the Year for 2019. All the categories will include a Public Vote ensuring loyal customers everywhere can have a say in their favourite establishments which will be recognised on the national stage.


“There has been a wonderful response to these exciting new categories and we are delighted that the voting is already underway.” said Damian Cummins, Director of the SME National Business Awards. “Whether individuals, families or communities across the UK are nominating their favourite place to drink coffee, have a meal or have a pint we are seeing great examples from across the four corners of our nation.”


“We wanted to ensure the very best Coffee Shops, Pubs and Restaurants were recognised and with the closing date fast approaching there is still time for people to nominate their favourite and ensure it gets the opportunity to shine with so many others.”


The SME National Business Awards is challenging any business from the three new categories who have a brand name that brings people into their establishments and also keeps them coming back time and time again. Nominations can be made at http://bit.ly/SMENominate



“We want to hear from Coffee Shops, Pubs and Restaurants where customers know what they are getting when they step through the door.” Damian added. “It is about quality and a high standard of customer service. The winners will provide an exceptional all-round experience as standard and we genuinely don’t want anyone or any business left out.”


The 4 public vote categories at the SME National Business Awards 2019 includes Best Customer Service, Pub of the Year, Restaurant of the Year and Coffee Shop of the year.


Each nomination in the public vote categories will be required to fill out an application form to complete their entry with independent businesses, franchises, and branches of larger businesses permitted to enter the public vote categories.


The competition is open to all businesses nationally who commenced business before January 2019.


Entry into the Public Vote categories is FREE, although an entry form must be completed.
