Christine Garnett, who owns Hunters of Helmsley with husband Chris, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted in these fantastic awards again, which look to celebrate everything that is great about British food and drink. We need the public’s help to win, however, so we’d hugely appreciate anyone who can spare the time to cast a vote for us. We’d love to bring the award home to Helmsley!”
