Greene King Pub Partners held a glittering awards ceremony earlier this month in honour of its top licensees.
The Night of Excellence, which took place at the prestigious Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton, saw 11 awards presented to Greene King's top achievers.
Among the winners were Doug and Paula Bollen of the John Barleycorn in Duxford, Cambridgeshire, who won the pub of the year title and Connel and Lucy Sammon of the Round Green Tavern in Luton, Bedfordshire, who were named licensees of the year.
Speaking at the awards, managing director David Elliott said: "It is very important that Greene King as a pub operator maintains and builds quality businesses that customers want to use.
"We recognise that we can only do this with the dedication and commitment from our licensees and so the awards give us an opportunity to not only recognise licensees' hard work but also show the industry how well we are doing."
The event followed the company's unprecedented success in this year's Publican Awards in March, when Pub Partners was named Pub Company of the Year in the tenanted category for the second year running and its sister managed division, Greene King Pub Company, took top spot in the managed category.
Four of Greene King's pubs also reached the finals of The Publican Awards, and were invited to the Night of Excellence to celebrate their success.
