Ed Bedington, editor of The Morning Advertiser, said: “Entering these awards is a great opportunity for all pub operators, and we want to give as many of you the chance to get your entries into us as possible. These are the leading awards of their kind and we’ve been running them for 18 years now. It’s all about celebrating the great diversity that we see in the pub sector and finding the businesses that are really driving the industry forward.”
