THE moment is finally, nearly here – to reveal our very first Pub of the Year.
Excitement has been mounting for weeks as readers shouted about their favourite locals, voting in the hundreds for the home from home that provides the perfect pint, great food or a warm welcome.
And next week we will reveal who has clinched the prestigious crown in our campaign to recognise the many wonderful pubs on our doorstep in a tough time for the business.
The competition - sponsored by Chesterfield’s Central Cars and backed by pub industry heavyweights – will see the top hostelry win branded prizes, coverage and of course the title.
Thank you to everyone who sent in a nomination or voted for their favourite watering hole.
