Pubs’ chance to be crowned Best Beer Garden
A nationwide search is underway to discover Britain’s most vibrant and picturesque pub gardens.
SME Insurance Services (SMEi), which specialises in providing business insurance to the pub and hospitality sector, has launched a summer campaign to champion the great British pub and the wealth of fantastic beer gardens available.
All those who work in the trade can enter by submitting images of their beer garden via: smeinsurance.com/britains-best-beer-garden, with the best ones being judged by criteria such as the most picturesque, best atmosphere and most family friendly. Whether it’s a city centre bar with a modern, alfresco drinking area to attract revellers or a classic traditional country pub, the campaign is open to beer gardens and pubs of all shapes and sizes.
Entries must be received before 31 August 2016, with those shortlisted put to a public vote on Facebook - giving pub goers, customers and local communities the chance to provide their support and vote for their favourite local.
The top three pubs will all receive prizes, with first place being awarded a £500 gift card, which they can use towards treating their team. In addition, a professional photographer will be commissioned to photograph the winning pub and garden in all its glory.
Jonathan Webber, Commercial Director of SME Insurance, said: “There are some stunning beer gardens across the UK, however they’re often largely undiscovered or unappreciated. With summer upon us, we wanted to shine the spotlight on the best outdoor facilities local pubs have to offer and crown the champion.
“We provide insurance cover to some fantastic pubs and wine bars, with lots of them attracting many of their customers purely because of their unique and inviting beer gardens. We know the effort that landlords and staff put in to making these gardens special, so if you feel your pub could be number one in the Britain’s Best Beer Garden 2016 competition, we’d urge you to enter.”
