Entry Information

Entries now closed until 2020!

The event has now been and gone, and we want to thank every single pub, large or small, that put themselves forward this year!

With 16 categories in 2019 suiting the many varied styles of pubs – from staples such as Best for Beer, Best for Food & Best for Cider, through to our newer category Best for LGBTQ+ – there really is a category for every kind of pub owner, providing a golden opportunity for top operators to get some recognition and reward.


Now featuring our most straightforward sign-up process since the awards began 19 years ago, it’s definitely worth a punt next year if you didn’t get your entry in this time around… you have nothing to lose and a nationally recognised award to gain!

Heath Ball, the winner of our 2018 Great British Pub of the Year Award, said “Winning the Great British Pub Awards has been amazing for my business. Since our success we have had an average of 30% increase in sales which is fantastic. Our regulars have all been amazing and were proud and delighted to share in our success. The awards are the best PR you could have. I’d urge all pub operators to enter, it’s well worth doing, the return on your time going through the awards is superb and you can’t buy the kind of publicity winning these awards can give you.”
