We are proud to announce that Yiayias at the Fox have not only won Business of the Year in Farnham but also Thebestof award for the UK, fighting off thousands of businesses throughout the country.

Greek restaurant Yiayias at The Fox in Farnham received 790 reviews during the campaign, winning the coveted accolade of Business of the Year in thebestof UK 2020 awards. 

At a national level, Yiayias at the Fox led the field throughout the campaign, in the category of Greek restaurants and won the award in this section, fighting off competition from businesses across the country.

In Farnham, in second place, was Bears restaurant and in third position The Wheatsheaf pub.

The Business of the Year Awards are organised by thebestof, a marketing organisation committed to raising the profile of local, independent businesses serving Farnham and the surrounding areas.

During the campaign, local people were encouraged to show their support for their favourite local business by leaving a review of the service they received from the business. The awards operate at a local level to recognise and award the Business of the Year in their Town, and at a National Level to recognise the overall UK Business of the Year, the Top 100 Businesses in the UK and the Business of the Year in each Business Category. 

Thebestof Farnham business owner, Martin Davidge-Stringer comments, “We congratulate all our local businesses who took part in the Farnham Business of the Year Awards.  While national news can sometimes focus on what’s going wrong with local high streets, we feel it’s important to acknowledge small businesses for their contribution to the local economy and their role in the community, which can often get forgotten. Local people have given their feedback on the businesses after using their services and we’ve seen some fantastic reviews, showcasing the great service you can receive from local businesses on our high streets. On behalf of the businesses, I’d like to thank every person who took the time to leave a review. By doing so they publicly acknowledged the difference that these businesses make to our area.”  

“Yiayias at The Fox is a very worthy winner. The number and quality of the reviews they received is a real testament to their ongoing commitment to deliver excellent service, family fresh home - made food and a positive customer experience.”

“Those businesses who won or were commended in their category nationally can be equally proud of their achievements and have certainly placed Farnham on the map for all the right reasons.” 

The final word goes to Paul Pyrgoudes, from Farnham’s Greek restaurant Yiayias at the Fox, “On behalf of myself and all the partners at the business, I’d like to thank all our loyal customers who took time out to post a review for the restaurant and also thanks to our dedicated team at Yiayias that make this possible. Thank you”.
