Cullenders, Reigate

It is an absolute privilege to be nominated for the awards. Over the past seven years, we have built up a loyal customer base in the local area. We truly believe in offering a great customer experience where we make an effort to get to know our customers on a personal level. At Cullenders we offer a retail experience that gives the customers great knowledge. Whether it be serving a coffee or selling a cheese selection for a dinner party.

Godalming Food Company, Godalming

We are absolutely delighted. We share a passion with our customers for local, artisan and exclusive produce which have unique flavours, not easily found amongst other retailers. Working in partnership with our local and independent producers and choosing the best produce is what makes us special. It’s always fascinating and enjoyable learning about their stories and being able to share these with our customers. Being a finalist for this category is a great reward for something we love doing and would like to thank our loyal customers for nominating us.

Garsons Farm Shop, Esher

We are absolutely thrilled to be nominated for this award. There are many great businesses, who like us, work hard to continuously promote the most delicious, great quality foods Surrey has to offer. In the summer months, we are fortunate to be able to offer customers a wide range of fresh produce directly from the farm. Over the years, we have built very close relationships with local producers supporting them and are always on the lookout for new and exciting products.
