A takeaway in Havering has been revealed as one of this year’s finalists for the British Takeaway Awards.

Smokin’ Griddle, Heath Park Road, Gidea Park, has been shortlisted for the best takeaway in north London award and will now attend the star-studded awards ceremony on November 27 at The Savoy in central London.

The winners will be chosen by a judging panel including chef Ainsley Harriott and businesswoman and former star of BBC 2’s Dragon’s Den Sarah Willingham.

The best takeaway in each of the 13 regions will receive £1,000 and free sign up to Just Eat.

UK managing director of Just Eat and 2017 British Takeaway Awards (BTA) judge Graham Corfield said: “There’s no doubt these finalists have the loyal support of their customers, who got them into the top five takeaways in north London by public vote.

“It is going to be a tough choice picking the winner.”
