Pub of the Year 2021

The 2021 Pub of the Year results might seem a little familiar if you can recall the 2020 results - in fact they're identical. With the pandemic closing pubs for much of 2020-21 last year's winners didn't get much of a chance to shine in the limelight, so we're giving them another opportunity in 2021-22. Normal service is expected to be resumed next year - so get down the pub, any pub, every pub and start drawing up your voting shortlist. Whilst you're there don't forget to drop in a beer score or two!
