Operators from across the nation gathered in Evolution London this week (Wednesday 29 March) to celebrate the 2023 Publican Awards.

A myriad of categories were up for grabs for businesses to be named the best employer, best drinks offer and more.

Award winners included Brewhouse & Kitchen, Urban Pubs & Bars, The Alchemist and many more. See here​ for the full list of champions.

A number of businesses took home two accolades including BrewDog, Greene King and Barons Pub Company.

The prestigious event saw more than 1,400 attendees join together and celebrate excellence across the pub and bar industry.

Ed Bedington, editor of The Morning Advertiser​, which organises the awards described all the finalists as "outstanding operators across a range of fields".

He added: "These awards are the pinnacle for companies to win – the judging process really puts the businesses through their paces and I'm delighted we have been able to celebrate with our winners.

"The pub and bar sector is really under the cosh at the moment so it is superb to see these businesses, despite the challenges, continue to maintain the high standards that have put them at the top of their game."

The awards are kindly sponsored by Britvic, Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I, Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Heineken, Kopparberg, Matthew Clark, Molson Coors, Moët Hennessy, Poppleston Allen and Sky.
