Wow, what a performance!

On February 1st, we counted the votes and it was clear right up to Midnight, the final minute on Friday 31st January that you wanted to support your local businesses by leaving your customer reviews. Nationally, we had to count again because there were so many last minute voters and we wanted to make sure we got it right.

The final and verified result was announced by Bestof HQ on Friday 14th February 2020.

So (drum rolls.........), our Bestof National Winner and  'UK Business Of The Year' 2019/20 is:

Yiayias Kitchen at The Fox in Lower Bourne, Farnham, Surrey who achieved a MAHOOSIVE 790 verified reviews/votes!
