Ifeoma Dozie, brand director for John Smith’s said: “Huge congratulations to the Eagle and Child in Ramsbottom for winning the Great British Pub of the Year!  It is a truly stunning pub – from the views, to the food, the events, the atmosphere, the beers and the staff.   It’s all these factors together that make British pubs the best in the World, and the Eagle and Child is worthy winner and there was incredibly stiff competition!

“We are so lucky in this country to have an abundance of pubs - nowhere else in the world has pubs like us Brits. Pubs are central to all our lives – they’re the place where memories are made, from first dates, to birthday nights out, to great evenings with mates. They are so central to every village, town and city in the UK and the people that run them are pillars of their communities.  Pubs are the places where people come together whether it’s for a pub quiz, weekly karaoke, live local bands, stand-up comedy, or just to simply enjoy a refreshing pint.

“The raft of extraordinary pubs in this country is a testament  to the hard work of licensees up and down the country – so well done to not only the winner, but to every pub that made the shortlist.”
