A Celebration of Sussex Life AwardsA Celebration of Sussex Life Awards

The Celebration of Sussex Life Awards are designed to champion, highlight and showcase our outstanding food, drink and hospitality industry. From local producers and suppliers to small farming businesses, restaurants, chefs, pubs and hoteliers, all those shortlisted for awards care about the countryside and the future of our region. The companies featured were nominated by our wonderful readers before being visited or interviewed to determine a worthy winner by our handpicked panel of high-profile judges.

Winner: The Serious Sandwich

What the judges said: The serious Sandwich sparkles with cleanliness and at the same time looks friendly, rather than clinical. Deesha is most welcoming and professional. The menu is, obviously, mainly sandwiches – an amazing variety. All ingredients are locally sourced, including the bread – cakes are made by a local baker. Quiches are made by Deesha in her home kitchen.

Highly commended: Baked Worthing

Highly commended: Wishing Well Tea Gardens
