Pubs from all across the country were nominated across seven categories including best pub fayre, best newcomer experience, best pint, best what’s on and best turnaround.
The winners from each category go into the hat for the coveted pub of the year award.

“The finalists have done extremely well to be shortlisted and have demonstrated to our expert judging panel that they have gone that extra mile.”
