Deciding which pub or bar is the best in the UK is surely the ultimate dream job? The Pub & Bar magazine staff will probably attest to that, as they have just whittled down a gigantic list of pubs and bars from across the UK to just 94 for the grand final on May 24th.

Each region is represented, with judges basing their decisions on product ranges, customer service, design and layout and entertainment. Held at London’s prestigious BAFTA theatre, the ceremony will see the shortlist narrowed down to 12 regional winners and, of course, one overall national winner.

Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine said: “What’s great about the Awards is that all the attendees of the Grand Final are already winners – they’re the best in their county. We’re very much looking forward to celebrating with everyone at BAFTA in London on 24 May.”

What a great way to celebrate Britain’s great pub tradition. MLA hopes that all who have made the cut for the glitzy ceremony at the end of the month have a fantastic time. And we hope their success inspires others to follow suit and create some truly special local pubs and bars!
