Deliveroo has launched a new website with 19 categories that are up for public vote.

The site also gives members of the public the opportunity to nominate any restaurant to put them in for the chance to pick up an award.

The longlist of nominations will be available to vote for until the second week of September, before the shortlist for each category is published on the website for a final public vote, with the winners announced at the ceremony on October 17 which will be hoested by Waitress star and Strictly Come Dancing finalist Ashley Roberts. 

Ashley said:  "After making my West End debut in Waitress, where I sang about food every night, I developed a full-blown obsession with the UK's food scene. I couldn't be more excited to celebrate some of Britain's best culinary talent at Deliveroo's Restaurant Awards."

Votes are now open to the public who will help whittle down nominations to just a handful of hopefuls on the evening. Anyone who votes is in with a chance to win £500 Deliveroo credit, and winning restaurants will receive business support and feature in a marketing campaign.

The big award of the night, The Restaurant Of The Year will be hand-selected by a panel of industry judges, including outspoken food critic Giles Coren and Will Shu, Deliveroo’s CEO. 

Commenting on the night Will Shu said:

“Over the last 6 years Deliveroo has been fortunate enough to work with over 20,000 British takeaways and restaurants and The Deliveroo Restaurant Awards is just the latest way we’re helping to celebrate our amazing restaurant partners.”
