The race is under way to find out the best companies in the trade as The Publican Awards gears up for the next stages of judging and announces those in the running.

The finalists have now been shortlisted across all 16 categories showcasing some of the best companies in the business.

The Publican Awards recognises excellence across the sector, from the best employers to the best tenanted and leased operators, to name a few.

Ed Bedington, editor of The Morning Advertiser​, which organises the awards, said: “The past two years have been incredibly challenging for everyone involved in the pub and bar trade and while we’re clearly not out of the woods yet, there have been some incredibly achievements by businesses to not just survive but thrive in the face of such adversity.

“The Publican Awards have always recognised excellence within the sector, businesses that go above and beyond to stand out as superb examples to the rest of the trade, and our finalists for the 2022 awards certainly live up to that.

“Judges are going to have a seriously tough time to pick out the winners from such a strong field, but we’ll be looking forward to revealing the winners in due course.”

The Publican Awards winners will be announced at a five-star celebratory event at Evolution London on March 30, 2022.
