Beautiful South Awards

Big Smiles All Round

We are over the moon to find out we have won County Pub of the Year in the National Pub and Bar Awards 2022!

Nearly 100 pubs and bars across the UK are celebrating ahead of the bank holiday weekend, after a selection of venues were named the best in their respective counties.

With consumer confidence on the rise and hospitality venues continuing their journey on the road to recovery, 94 pubs and bars across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have scooped a prestigious County Winner title as part of the 2022 National Pub & Bar Awards.

The award comes just months after receiving Pub of the Year in the South Prestige Awards and Bronze in the Beautiful South Awards for Best Pub.

Landlord Stuart Downie commented, “We are absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award. We have heavily invested in the pub since we took over in July 2020 and it just shows all the hard work has paid off.

“This couldn’t have been achieved without our incredible hard-working and passionate team who make the pub what it is” added Stuart.

The National Pub & Bar Awards aims to put exemplary on-trade businesses across the UK in the national spotlight, showcasing the hospitality industry’s diversity, creativity and vital importance to the UK economy.

The pubs, which have been selected on overall best practice across a number of operational categories, will be officially crowned at a red carpet celebration at 30 Euston Square on Wednesday 22 June. At the grand final, 15 Regional Winners will also be announced, as well as the esteemed accolade – the overall National Pub & Bar of the Year, which was won by Galvin Green Man in Essex in 2021.
