Votes pour in for South Norfolk's Pub of the Year competition

South Norfolk Council’s Pub of the Year competition is in full swing and the votes are pouring in from people supporting their favourite pubs.

South Norfolk Council’s Deputy Leader, Councillor Kay Mason Billig said: “It‘s fantastic to see just how much our local pubs are valued by their customers. These small businesses are an important part of our rural economy and are at the heart of our communities.

“If you’re passionate about your local and want to show them that you appreciate them, then vote for them.”

This year you can vote in the following categories:

Outstanding Community Focus
This is the pub who goes over and above what is expected from them within their community. Whether they host regular events, fund raise for local causes or always makes sure there is room for your community group, this is the pub that is the most community focused.

Best Customer Service
This is the pub where everybody is happy to see you. They go the extra mile in ensuring you have the best time in their pub. From a smiley face at the bar, to the extra please and thank you, this is the pub that has the best customer service.

Most Family Friendly
This is the pub that welcomes you all, from the day you were born. They are ready for you all, with room for the buggy, water for your dogs and quieter areas for you all to chat, this is the pub that is the most family friendly.

Tastiest Food and Drink
This is the pub you always go to for their food or their drink. They have exactly what you want, when you want it, and it tastes delicious too. The options may be endless, or they may be just what you want, this is the pub that serves the tastiest food and drink.

The pub with the most votes in each category will be a finalist. Judges will visit each finalist to choose an overall winner.

The result will be revealed at a ceremony held at last year's winning pub, the Wheatacre White Lion on 7 October 2019. The overall winner will receive £500 to spend on an event for their community.

More information on these categories and how to vote can be found on our website: Voting closes on 8 September.
