Scarborough UK Awards 2014 - Finalists Announced Reviewed by Editor on 11:34:00 Rating: 5


  1. Good luck to everyone!

  2. Isn't Domino's an international chain/ franchise, using the same menu throughout the UK? The same goes for Ask. So how can they be nominated for best local take-away and best local restaurant? I'm not knocking Domino's or Ask, I think they're both great, but surely shouldn't these categories celebrate local restaurants that use local produce and suppliers? Why not include Pizza Hut and McDonald's in these categories if you're including national chains? Sorry if I've missed the point.

    1. The nominations were open to all Scarborough based businesses, both local & national. All those in the final were nominated by the public and received multiple nominations.

  3. Do they nominate themselves for this award?

    1. The nomination stage was open to the public and all finalists received multiple nominations.

  4. Hopefully we will be nominated next year. :) gekoglass, Hanover road

  5. Is there a date/time for the results to be announced? The tension is getting too much for me.

  6. Lots of people had trouble getting on to link to vote...........
    Has it been finalised yet?
    What is happening?
