Welcome to The 2014 Catey Awards.
Welcome to the Cateys 2014. It's time once again to recognise and celebrate the individuals, teams and businesses shaping the hospitality industry.
Since their inception in 1984, the Cateys have cast a spotlight on the industry’s highest flyers, strongest performers and hottest brands. Over more than a quarter of a century, they have become a byword for quality, class and achievement, the awards that everybody wants to win. No wonder then that the industry refers to them as its Oscars Night.
We all need role models in our working lives, people and businesses we can look up to and learn from. This week we start the search for a fresh set of hospitality industry exemplars as we launch the call for entries for the Cateys – which take place on Tuesday 1st July 2014.
Why does winning a Catey mean so much? Because recipients are nominated, selected and rewarded by their industry peers. A Catey statue on your mantelpiece symbolises Caterer readers’ collective desire to recognise your efforts in supporting and developing the UK's hospitality scene.
Do you know of an individual, business or organisation that is worthy of shouting about? If so, we want to hear from you.
This website helps you understand more about the Cateys, explains how to nominate or enter, lists all past winners and showcases all of our sponsors.

- I felt so lucky, honoured and grateful to win the 2013 Manager of the Year Catey. It was an amazing and memorable moment which I was so happy to share with my colleagues and partner.
- To win the 2013 Independent Restaurateur of the Year Catey was one of the highlights of a pretty remarkable period for me. So imagine my excitement when I scooped the Chef Award too - a double that no-one else had achieved before. To add these two gongs to the Catey I had already won in 2005, the Newcomer Award, made me feel incredibly proud to be acknowledged for my efforts from industry greats and it is something I will never forget.
- The whole Catey experience was overwhelming. It was not just being nominated, nor the fantastic experience of being presented with the 2013 Education and Training Catey statue on the night, but it was also all the messages of congratulations that kept coming after the awards evening. To be recognised with a Catey, and to realise that so many people value what you do, is deeply humbling.
- Winning the 2013 Pub and Bar Catey was fantastic. It is a huge honour to be recognised, and to be in the same company of many great names in the hospitality industry who have previously won a Catey, is incredible. Our bronze Catey sits with pride of place at The Pipe and Glass and is a constant reminder of what can be achieved.
