Full shortlist for 2016 Catey Menu of the Year 2016 revealed

Three more restaurants have joined the shortlist for The Caterer's Menu of the Year Catey award 2016, sponsored by Quorn.

Adams in Birmingham, the Leconfield in West Sussex and the Lord Crewe Arms in County Durham were successful in making the shortlist after appearing in The Caterer during February to April.

Restaurants are selected quarterly from all the menus featured on the Menuwatch pages of the Chef section of over the previous three months. The full shortlist of 12 menus will be judged later this month.

The menus are judged on innovation within the price bracket of that particular establishment or contract; good use of seasonal produce on the menu; creativity of the dishes being served; careful marrying of textures and flavours of the component ingredients; value for money; and, seeing the menu or selection of dishes, whether the judges would be tempted to eat there.

The full list of 12 restaurants that have been added to the shortlist for the Menu of the Year Catey 2016 is:


The Dining Room, Whatley Manor

Freemasons at Wiswell


The Leconfield

Lord Crewe Arms



The Pointer


Princess Victoria

The Shore

The Caterer Awards, now in their 33rd year and also known as the Cateys, will take place on 5 July. To explore sponsorship opportunities, contact Rob Adam at
