Lower Marsh Market wins
The Time Out Love London Awards 2016 are designed to help Londoners share their favourite businesses within the areas in which they live and work. It is a chance for Londoners within the London postcode region to showcase places in their neighbourhood they would recommend to visitors and new residents.
They are five categories: pubs and bars; restaurants; shops; cafés and coffee shops and local culture, by which they mean independent cinemas, galleries, theatres etc. The Time Out Love London Awards 2016 programme has been developed largely around independent businesses, rather than chains with more than ten sites across the capital city.
