A pub can only be as good as the people running it. And if anyone can spot a well-run boozer, it’s the British Institute of Innkeeping. All of these pubs have made it to the semi-final of the BII Licensee of the Year Awards 2018 – so you know they’re worth a visit.
These 94 outstanding venues have been named the best in their county in the National Pub & bar Awards 2018. They now each have the chance to be named one of 15 regional champions at the grand final in May. And one lucky contender will be crowned the overall National Pub & Bar of the Year!
In typical British style we’ve gone and gotten ourselves all excited at the mere glimpse of a few sun-rays. So now we're daydreaming of enjoying a road-trip or two to some of the country's best waterside watering-holes. Because when you see sunshine, you think seaside, of course!
