The Hotel, Restaurant and B&B Awards are OPEN for 2021!


UPDATE: The Marmalade Awards WILL continue in 2021 and we are asking entrants from around the world to submit their jars as normal through the post. However, the results will be delayed until June to allow all entries to be judged safely.

Founder Jane Hasell-McCosh has the following message:

Since announcing the Awards would return in 2021, we have had such a fantastic reaction from all over the world. People are thrilled to be able to participate in something creative after what has been such a difficult year. We therefore feel it is vital to hold the Awards this year, as long as we can do so safely.

The wellbeing of our judges and volunteers is very important, and unfortunately, we cannot judge at present, but we will quickly resume judging as soon as everyone is comfortable it can be conducted safely. The deadline for entries is still the 10th February, so please send your entries in now. Luckily, marmalade is a product that can be stored for weeks or months without losing its quality!’

The deadline for entries is Wednesday 10th February. Winners will be notified once the judging has taken place, and the Awards will be announced at marmalade Festivities on Sunday 20th June.

We know that 2020 has been an exceptionally difficult year for everyone, not least the hospitality industry, and we are proud to champion the Hotels, Restaurants and B&Bs that make and serve the best marmalades. It makes all the difference to your customers, and we think it should be celebrated. It is so important to have delicious, homemade food when you stay somewhere, and marmalade is obviously the most important component to a good breakfast!
