Great British Pub Awards 2024: Which London Pubs Made The Shortlist?

The shortlist for the 2024 Great British Pub Awards has been announced, with nine London spots making the cut. Running annually, the prestigious awards see nominees examined by a panel of judges, who put together a shortlist ahead of the winners being announced in a special ceremony – taking place this year on 17 September in Manchester.

For the 2024 shortlist, London pub nominations include The Pig’s Head in Clapham, a relatively new gastropub with a farm-to-fork ethos, which is in the running for Best Sustainable Pub. Three hotspots have been nominated for Best Pub for Entertainment: Soho Cabaret venue The Phoenix Arts Club, Greenwich favourite The Trafalgar Tavern, and LGBTQIA+-friendly pub Two Brewers in Clapham.
