The 2018 Seafood Restaurant of the Year Competition is now open to entry. The annual competition is open to all UK restaurants that include fish and shellfish on their menus, and seeks to reward those restaurants and cafes and other eateries that are demonstrating both excellent examples of the cooking and serving of fish and shellfish, and evidence of fish and shellfish knowledge. The competition is open to entry from all forms of restaurants - not just specific seafood focussed restaurants. 

The judges will be looking for clear evidence of responsible sourcing of sustainable raw ingredients, successful fish and shellfish promotion on menus, excellent levels of product knowledge both front and back of house, and examples of how customers are encouraged to eat fish and shellfish. Following an initial shortlisting judging process, the Top 10 restaurants will then be visited by a mystery diner judge, which will determine a final top five listing of leading restaurants, which will be revealed in autumn 2018.
