The Eat Game Awards

The Eat Game Awards is an exciting initiative set up by James Purdey & Sons, Boisdale Restaurants and Taste of Game. Its main aim is to award recognition and help develop game as a vibrant and modern addition to the British menu, whilst encouraging the British public to discover and embrace this valuable food source. The Awards will identify and celebrate the innovators, creators and revolutionaries in the world of wild game.

It will be up to the public to nominate the people or businesses that they feel embody the criteria of each category. These include:

  • Best restaurant regularly serving game
  • Best pub regularly serving game

The Process

Nominations will be open from the 1st September 2017 to 15th June 2018. After nominations have been received, the top 10 strongest nominees will be revealed. These 10 nominees will go forward for online voting on the website, which will run from the 12th August 2018  until the 30th September 2018. Winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Boisdale Canary Wharf in October 2018. It is worth noting that everyone who puts forward a nomination will be entered into a prize draw, to win a dinner for four at Boisdale.

The Eat Game Awards will be supporting the Country Food Trust. Currently, they produce game meat casseroles packaged in ready to eat long life pouches, for every unit sold, one will be given to charity. All proceeds raised on the Awards night will go to the charity.

Aimed at stimulating demand, interest and respect for the produce of the game industry on a national scale. We believe that this event will promote this unique, sustainable, natural British produce and highlight the fantastic field to fork ethos!
