"I am absolutely delighted to be able to unveil the full list of finalists for The Publican Food & Drink Awards 2010​.

"These licensees, pub chefs and their pub businesses have already proved that they offer a market-leading experience for their customers and should be rightly proud of their achievement in getting this far.

"Our judges are already on the road visiting all of them in preparation for the final judging sessions next month when a wealth of industry experts will come together to pick this year's champions.

"I look forward to welcoming all our finalists on the night of the awards for what promises to be a fantastic celebration of the industry's true food and drink champions."
