The entry deadline for the awards has now been extended to 29 May to give pubs a last minute chance to avoid missing out on the pub industry’s top awards.
Ed Bedington, editor of the Morning Advertiser, which organises the awards, said: “We’re conscious that time is precious for all operators, so we’re giving you an extra week to finish off those entries and get them over the line.
“This competition is the one to win for pubs, with previous winners seeing significant uplifts in business as a result of their win. And with the challenging times we’re facing, any uplift is well worth it.”
There are three new categories in this year’s competition, alongside the regular categories. These include Best Sustainable Pub, Best Country/Rural Pub and Best City/Urban Pub.
