Pub Of The Season (POTS)

 

Pub of the season is a new idea that allows members to choose their favourite pubs that serve excellent real ale but also qualify in the criteria below. The top three establishments with the most number of votes will then be voted for by members at a branch meeting.

 

The establishment with the most number of votes will be the winner for that Season.

 

Once all four establishments have won, they will be entered into an email vote, the most votes will determine who is the Pub of the Year for the branch.
