Almost 100 spots have been named county winners

Everyone has their favourite local – but does it match up to what the experts think? The winners of this year’s National Pub and Bar Awards have been announced, with 94 spots named across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

County Winners Revealed For The National Pub and Bar Awards

Each year, Pub & Bar magazine opens applications for its annual awards, going on to pick county winners based on various different factors. This is followed by an awards ceremony, taking place this year on 26 June, which will see 15 regional winners announced, alongside prestigious categories like Pub Brand of the Year, Bar Brand of the Year, The Tyrrells Tyrrellbly Good Taste Award and the overall National Pub & Bar of the Year.

In London, two pubs were crowned the capital’s best for 2024: Mr Fogg’s City Tavern in Broadgate, and The Audley Public House in Mayfair. The former is a Victorian-style tavern serving an array of beers, cocktails and British fare, while The Audley is a smart, art-focused pub from the team behind Hauser and Wirth.

Pub & Bar magazine editor, Tristan O’Hana, said: ‘The fact that we had record entries for the 2024 National Pub & Bar Awards tells us two things. One is how highly the industry regards these accolades, which is fantastic. But, also, it shows that more operators are in need of really positive and strong publicity to help drive business at the moment.

‘Pubs and bars are facing some of the biggest challenges in recent history, so if the National Pub & Bar Awards can help by lifting sales across these venues, then we’re delighted to play our part.’
