Finest Pubs in Suffolk Encouraged to Enter Awards to Ensure they are Named as UKs Best

Pubs across Suffolk are being encouraged to ensure the wonderful food and drink on offer across the nation is recognised as the best in the UK.

With Suffolk being home to some of the most nationally recognised drink producers the SME National Business Awards are encouraging owners and drinkers to ensure their favourite place is nominated for the prestigious awards.

The SME National Business Awards have announced a brand new category of Pub of the Year for 2019. It will include a Public Vote ensuring loyal customers everywhere can have a say in their favourite restaurant being recognised on the national stage by visiting http://bit.ly/SMENominate


“We know that Suffolk has some of the best Pubs in the UK.” said Damian Cummins, Director of the SME National Business Awards. “We want their amazing offer of food and drink to be recognised in order that it can be rightly celebrated along with the authentic, high quality and passionate service they provide to local people.”


“Every person and every family in Suffolk has their favourite place to drink. Now is the time to ensure those Pubs are recognised on a national stage.” Damian continued.


Independently owned Pubs are being encouraged the enter but those establishments who are part of a franchise or chain can also take part with a focus of the awards being venues where the brand name brings people in and keeps customers coming back time and time again.


“The winners of this prestigious award will provide an exceptional all-round food and drink experience as standard and we can’t wait to hear to celebrate the wonderful offering people want to share.”


Pub of the Year will form part of the 4 public vote categories at the SME National Business Awards 2019 which also includes Best Customer Service, Restaurant of the Year and Coffee Shop of the Year.

Each nomination in the public vote categories will be required to fill out an application form to complete their entry with independent businesses, franchises, and branches of larger businesses permitted to enter the public vote categories.

The competition is open to all businesses nationally who commenced business before January 2019.

Entry into the Public Vote categories is FREE, although an entry form must be completed.
