Southport pubs have the chance of winning National awards

Nominations are now open for the annual celebration of beer which aims to hail be best ale sellers and raise a glass to the perfect pint pourers across the country.

And Southport is in with a good chance of coming away with a beer gong!

In recent months Southport and the surrounding area has seen a sharp increase in the number of pubs and bars opening.

And they all have a chance of winning an award at the National Pub & Bar Awards, which have now opened for local nominations.

The search is now on to find the best of the best in Merseyside before the coveted national finals in May.

A spokesperson for the National Pub and Bar Awards said: “The venues could be run by a single-site operator, part of a leased or tenanted estate or part of a managed group, it doesn’t matter – the National Pub & Bar Awards is all about the individual sites in each county and highlighting the brilliance of their work.

“From perfect service to product range, aesthetic design or environmental credentials, the regional winners will be judged on all the aspects required to provide ultimate hospitality within the on-trade.

“The entry deadline for operators is March 17.”
