The shortlist for the 2022 Catey awards has been revealed after judges met to consider hundreds of entries last week.

The biggest awards of their kind in the hospitality industry, the Cateys recognise the strongest performers, latest emerging brands and highest flyers in the sector, as determined by the industry itself.

Chosen for their expertise and industry knowledge, over 100 judges met to discuss the nominees and produce our shortlist.

The winners, representing British hospitality at its best, will be revealed at a glittering event on 5 July at JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.

The Caterer's editor James Stagg said: "We were overwhelmed by entries to this year's Cateys, so the judges had an incredibly tricky task to refine so many incredible submissions. Those who made this years shortlist should be rightly proud of their achievements and we can't wait to celebrate them at Grosvenor House in July."
