The South East Central Awards 2011 - Vote for the local Pub, Restaurant and Shop of the Year

On our sister site, the South East Central forum, we've launched a public vote to find the pub, restaurant and shop of the year in the greater, greater Brockley area. Forum users nominated businesses from each of the neighbourhoods covered by the site: Brockley, Nunhead, Peckham, Ladywell, Honor Oak, Deptford, New Cross, Lewisham and Catford.

Voting is open now and the winners will be announced on December 20th. While we're looking forward to finding out the winners, the best thing about this process has been learning or being reminded about all of the excellent places on our doorstep. So even if you don't vote, check out the long-lists for each category and ask yourself: if you haven't been to them all, why not?

The shortlisted top 10s for each category are very strong and, for the most part, pretty fair, although there were one or two places that got robbed and poor old benighted Catford didn't get a single nomination, which seems a little harsh.
