YOU’ve cast votes in the hundreds to find our first Pub of the Year.
Nearly 1,000 people shouted about their lovely local, favourite country inn or town centre hostelry in our campaign to help celebrate pubs during a tough time for the industry.
Watch this space for the winner - to be revealed very soon as the results are being prepared – of the contest sponsored by Central Cars in Chesterfield and backed by the British Beer and Pub Association.
One lucky reader is already celebrating after scooping a bottle of champagne in the prize for a voter chosen at random.
The winner is Hannah May, of Whitwell.
Keep an eye on the Derbyshire Times for the winner of our first Pub of the Year contest.
They will scoop not only the prestigious crown but also branded prizes and coverage.
