The best cafés, bars, destination pubs, hotels, restaurants, farm shops, boutique stays, and family attractions in Surrey will soon be named. This is as 105 businesses have been shortlisted across 21 categories for regional awards hosted by Muddy Stilettos.

The what’s on gurus describe the gongs as the “most coveted awards” that set out to celebrate independent lifestyle businesses across the UK. Categories also champion local food and drink producers, lifestyle and arts venues, and fitness providers.

Muddy Stilettos commented: “Run with positivity and a sense of fun, the Muddy Awards offer our 3.8 million readers a chance to say a massive thank you to their favourite local businesses.” Regional final winners will be selected from shortlists of five businesses in each category, set to be announced on May 2 2024.
