Over forty casual dining pubs and restaurants from across the UK are competing for prestigious design awards at this month’s Casual Dining trade event, taking place at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London, on 25-26th February.

Now in their second year, the Casual Dining Design Awards includes three categories - Best Designed Independent Restaurant, Best Designed Multiple Restaurant, and Best Designed Casual Dining Pub.

This year’s shortlist, includes high street names like ASK Italian, Nando’s, Wagamama, and Pizza Hut Restaurants, plus a range of entries from scalable independents ready for rapid expansion to historic pubs that have been given a new lease of life.

David Worthington, chairman of Holmes & Marchant Design Group, who is back to head up to the Casual Dining Design Awards judging panel, said: “Consumers are becoming more discerning where design and branding is concerned. There’s more to consider than just the senses of taste and smell - ambience and visual stimulation beyond the plate are more important than ever.

“This year’s shortlist boasts an extraordinary array of talent and innovative projects and the casual dining sector has proven yet again, that design should be at the forefront of business decisions. I look forward to some lively debate with my fellow judges at this year’s awards.”

The winners of the Casual Dining Design Awards 2015 will be announced during a dedicated design panel session featuring Worthington, Krassa, Williams, and Norden.  They’ll be discussing emerging design trends in the casual dining sector in the show’s Keynote Theatre on Wednesday 25 February from 1.45pm.
