The operator of eight sites across the capital, Darwin & Wallace is a collection of neighbourhood bars, which revolve around green credentials, bespoke design as well as a top-notch food and drink offer.
A previous winner of the Best Sustainable Pub Company gong, London-based Darwin & Wallace was shortlisted in three categories at this year’s Publican Awards – Best Drinks Offer, Best Premium Food Offer and, once again, Best Sustainable Pub Company.
Ed Bedington, editor of The Morning Advertiser, which organises the awards, said: “This year’s event has certainly been different, going from a gathering of 1,500 in Battersea to an online ceremony in the virtual world, but the ethos remains the same – celebrating excellence and there’s plenty to celebrate.
“Many companies, having faced the challenges and disasters of 2020 could be forgiven for pulling down the shutters and sitting the crisis out. Our finalists tonight, and many others in the sector, did the exact opposite of that, rose to the challenge and did some amazing things.
“We wanted to continue with the awards this year to recognise those businesses that made sacrifices and strove to not just keep going, but to improve and thrive in the teeth of a brutal storm.
“Here’s to next year when companies can get back to doing what they do best, providing outstanding hospitality experiences for their guests.”
