They have demonstrated excellence across a number of elements that affect the customer journey including design, service, style of offer, marketing and investment.

The venues, including the iconic 14th century Galvin Green Man in Essex, now have more than two months in which to trade off their win.

They will then make their way to the National Pub & Bar Awards grand final held in London on June 26.

The final will welcome all 94 county winners to come together and celebrate their achievements before discovering which venues will go on to become regional winners.

The awards night will also crown the Pub Group of the Year, Bar Group of the Year, The Tyrrells Tyrrellbly Good Taste Award and finally the overall National Pub & Bar of the Year.

“The fact that we had record entries for the 2024 National Pub & Bar Awards tells us two things,” said Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, which runs the event.

“One is how highly the industry regards these accolades, which is fantastic.

“But, also, it shows that more operators are in need of really positive and strong publicity to help drive business at the moment.
