The competition, run by leading trade magazine the Publican’s Morning Advertiser, is the stand-out event for pub operators throughout the country, with the awards seen as the “ones to win”, attracting hundreds of entries

Securing a place as a finalist in these awards is a great opportunity to raise the profile of your business, opening the door to new customers and opportunities. Winning can take your business to another level, as Susie Czopor, from the Grafton in Kentish Town, London, says:

“The benefits of winning the award have been threefold: we’ve certainly become much more well-known within the industry; our team is brimming with pride to be working at an award-winning pub; and we believe the award has played a significant part in the growth of our business.”

Ed Bedington, editor of The Publican's Morning Advertiser, said:

“These awards are a great platform to promote your business. Making it through as a finalist can be a huge boost, and a great opportunity to PR your operations, and if you’re lucky enough to win, then the sky’s the limit!”

There are 16 categories including: Best Community Pub, Best Turnaround Pub, Best Newcomer, Best Partnership Pub, Best Food Pub, Best Beer Pub/Bar and Best Family Pub.
