Tweets, posts, and pictures galore! Publicans took to social media in their droves to celebrate their success and show off what a good night they were having at the John Smith's Great British Pub Awards – so much so that the #pubawards reached more than 1m people on Twitter alone... 

For months, the anticipation for the Great British Pub Awards​ has been building, finally accumulating in a glamorous evening at the Hilton Park Lane, London, last night (September 7), with finalists coming from far and wide.

As soon as guests entered the venue they were greeted with a sparkling array of beverages to try, from Diageo, Southern Comfort, Schweppes, and John Smith's.

After spending time mingling, networking and gossiping publicans made their way to dinner, the awards tantalisingly minutes away.

Before the main event kicked off, guests were treated to the comedic delight of Henning Wehn.

At long last, the awards were handed out – with winners crying tears of joy at their success!

After the awards, publicans took to the dance floor, posed for pictures, and partied the night away!

Congratulations to all our finalists, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
