Ian Slater, chairman of Hospitality Sheffield, said: “The hospitality industry has changed so much over the past 30 years but one thing has remained: excellent service – and the people who deliver it – is still the most important thing to our guests.”

BBC North’s Tom Ingall hosted the awards bash including a drinks reception and a dinner at Bramall Lane.

Nominations had been put forward by work colleagues and winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts.
