You chose 10 great pubs, so which one deserves to be crowned Pub of the Year 2016?
We find many qualities in a great pub. Individuality and character, welcoming ambience, good beer, wine and food. And not forgetting the decor, seating, lighting, nice nibbles, clean loos and so on. But ultimately, it’s the people – staff and regulars –who make a pub great.
Well here’s your chosen top 10 pubs of the year.
The fate of the finalists is in your hands.
