South Norfolk Community Pub of the Year

Pub of the Year 2019

Our pubs play a huge part in local life and our Community Pub of the Year Awards are here to help recognise the impact they have on our community.

Voting opens Monday 1st July for the 2019 Community Pub of the Year Award.

Which category should your favourite pub win?

1.  Outstanding Community Focus

This is the pub who goes over and above what is expected from them within their community.  Whether they host regular events, fund raise for local causes or always makes sure there is room for your community group, this is the pub that is the most community focused.

2.  Best Customer Service

This is the pub where everybody is happy to see you.  They go the extra mile in ensuring you have the best time in their pub.  From a smiley face at the bar, to the extra please and thank you, this is the pub that has the best customer service.

3.  Most Family Friendly

This is the pub that welcomes you all, from the day you were born.  They are ready for you all, with room for the buggy, water for your dogs and quieter areas for you all to chat, this is the pub that is the most family friendly.

4.  Tastiest Food and Drink

This is the pub you always go to for their food or their drink.  They have exactly what you want, when you want it, and it tastes delicious too.  The options may be endless, or they may be just what you want, this is the pub that serves the tastiest food and drink.
