MFDF11 Awards: Winners

Back in August I gave a preview to the Manchester Food and Drink Awards 2011. The winners were announced this month with a couple of notable headlines:

It’s the fourth time in the last five years that Ramsons and Aumbry have been honoured with awards.
For the third year running a Retailer based in Chorlton has picked up the best Food and Drink accolade.
The chocolate café is also a repeat winner after being recognised as the best family friendly venue in 2010, it now wins the prize for best coffee shop.
