Now that this years’ finalists have been revealed, our mystery judges will be out and about visiting each restaurant and takeaway over the next few weeks, sampling what’s on offer, and helping to decide who’s the best of the best…

But it’s not all about the food. In fact the ‘taste test’ is only half the job of being a judge…

When they arrive, judges will also be looking at a number of other factors to help decide the overall winner in each category.

These judges look set to leave no stone unturned in pursuit of the very best…
