The annual British Takeaway Awards 2018 ranks the nation's takeaways for their culinary excellence and customer service, crowning only the best.
Brits spend a staggering £9.8BILLION on takeaways every year – more than most of Europe combined – so it's important to know if you're ordering the tastiest grub.
A family-run bistro in Mersyside has been named the Best Takeaway in Britain after ditching plastic packaging and wrapping food in recyclable boxes instead.
Brunch scooped the top prize – and £5,000 – for a "top notch menu" and their efforts on sustainability.
Founder Sharon Carline was presented with the accolade at a ceremony held on November 12 at the posh Savoy Hotel in London, which was also attended by celebrities including Rachel Riley, Goergia "Toff" Toffolo, Spencer Matthews and Vogue Williams, and Frankie and Wayne Bridges.
The awards are held in partnership with fast food delivery service Just Eat, which means that you can get dishes from all of the top notch restaurants delivered to your door.
