The search is on for our Pub of the Year

Do you prefer a cosy traditional ale house, with comfy seats, crackling fire, the happy hum of background conversation and a pint?

Perhaps it’s the banter and cheer of a buzzing street corner boozer, or gleaming city bar, craft beers and rustic snacks? Yes, pubs are a haven of solace and authenticity.

Tell us who balances charm and history, 
service and sympathy, a well-stocked bar and hearty food, all pulled together 
with effortless professionalism. Who should make the top 10 from our list of nominees?
