The annual Ox In A Box Food Awards are held to give Oxfordshire’s hospitality industry a much needed boost, a massive pat on the back and the recognition and attention it deserves after such a terrible few years, it’s your votes that count, and you alone can choose the finalists of your favourite Oxfordshire pubs, restaurants and cafes.

The top three winners of each category will then be invited to the glittering ceremony where the winners will be presented with their trophies on the night. The Ox In A Box Food Awards overall winner will also be chosen.
