IN the mood to drool over food?

We have just the thing to satisfy your cravings.

Over the next eight weeks our Food and Drink Awards is back following a successful debut in 2016.

And this year it's tastier than ever before with four new categories.

Celebrating the best dishes, restaurants and takeaways in the area, we will be revealing a new category at the start of each week across our Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich, Knutsford and Wilmslow Guardian websites and appealing for your suggestions.

The most popular will then be entered into an online ballot on Friday lunchtimes where readers can vote for their favourites.

The overall winners will be revealed in a special supplement in the newspaper this spring.

To kick things off this year, we're looking for your favourite pub in Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich, Knutsford or Wilmslow.

Where do you think pulls the best pint, serves the best pub grub or has the best atmosphere?

Post your suggestions in the comments section below, on our Facebook wall or tweet them to us.

And then don’t forget to check on Friday if your favourite has made the cut when we launch our online vote.
