The shortlist for the 2024 Great British Pub Awards has been unveiled with pubs across the country making the final stage.

Hundreds of pubs entered the competition, before expert judges whittled it down across two rounds of judging before the on-the-road visits take place across the summer.

This prestigious event will be returning to Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Tuesday 17 September where guests will be treated to a truly unforgettable evening with a celebration of epic proportions.

Editor of The Morning Advertiser​, which organises the awards, Ed Bedington said: “The great British pub is an institution to be proud of and we are extremely proud to be able to recognise and honour some of the best businesses in the country.

“Our finalists have been selected from hundreds of incredible entries from across the nation and we are excited to visit the sites before revealing the winners in September.”

The awards are kindly sponsored by Booker Makro, Coca Cola Europacific Partners, Diageo GB, Molson Coors and SIBA, alongside pubco partners Admiral Taverns, Greene King, Marston’s, Punch Pubs and Stonegate.
