The Muddy Award Winners 2019

You voted for them in your thousands! Raise your glasses ladies and gents to meet the Cornwall Muddy Award winners of 2019

That’s it people. The Muddy Awards have come a glorious end after another fast, frantic and terribly exciting finish.

Thank you so very much to all the many thousands of you who supported the brilliant indie businesses across Cornwall, and thank you also to the Finalists, all of whom would have made worthy winners. We really are so lucky to have such wonderful independent business in Cornwall – and such supportive and loyal communities who get behind them. For that, I say we give a big cheer to everyone.

Right then, enough blathering on from me. WHO WON?

Without further ado, meet your 2019 Cornwall Muddy Awards winners. Make sure you visit them next time you’re passing and see what all the fuss is about!

    Good Choice. Should be UK, not just the Cornwall County

    Great to see The Pandora Inn won the “Best Destination Pub” the best place to sit and unwind over a drink, a meal and take in the ambiance.

    Elf and Zip is a well deserved win. Emma’s clothes are beautiful, high quality and obviously made with love.
