The search is now on for the UK's top pubs in the Publican's Morning Advertiser's Great British Pub Awards 2011.

There are 16 categories for licensees to enter including two new to this year's awards — Best Smoking Area and Best Sports Pub.

Other categories include Best Entertainment Pub, Best Gastropub Pub, Best Community Pub and Best Tenanted/Leased Pub.

All finalists will be invited to a glittering awards ceremony in London on Thursday 8 September.

Winning a Great British Pub Award is a great way to boost morale and showcase your achievements.

Richard and Dee Slade of the Battlesteads in Wark-on-Tyne, Northumberland, won the overall title of Great British Pub of the Year in 2010.

Richard Slade said: "Anyone considering entering should go for it — you have nothing to lose. It's an opportunity to scrutinise your business — to look how far you've come, where you want to be and how you're going to get there."

TLC Inns won Best Family Pub of the Year 2010. Founder Steve Haslam said: "Winning a GBPA was fantastic for our venue, not only is it great for our business but almost more importantly it was great for our team."
