We couldn’t be prouder to announce that The Grafton has been named Great British Pub Of The Year 2014!
The pub industry’s ‘Oscars’ equivalent is organised by leading industry publication the Publican’s Morning Advertiser, who threw a glittering ceremony at London’s Hilton on Park Lane on 11th September 2014. The Grafton’s owners Susie Clarke and Joel Czopor were there to receive the award presented by Sky Sports F1 presenter Natalie Pinkham.
The Grafton was praised by awards judges for being a ‘diverse modern business, which remains true to the ideals of a traditional pub’.
Judges were impressed with the Grafton’s great product range, excellent service standards and how it has managed to utilise previously underused space such as its new all-weather roof terrace, upstairs bar and boardroom.
Rob Willock, editor of the Publican’s Morning Advertiser, said: “Susie, Joel and the team at the Grafton thoroughly deserve the title of Sky Great British Pub of the Year 2014.”
Willcock explained: “The pub is a quality establishment, from the décor to the fixtures and fittings, and the excellent service standards on display.”
“It wears its community credentials with pride, and delivers a wide range of occasions for its customer base, each bringing something new to the area.”
Willock added: “The Great British Pub Awards celebrate the cream of the crop in the pub trade, and the winners should serve as an inspiration to pubs throughout the country.”
Join us to celebrate this incredible achievement at our 2nd Birthday bash on 27th and 28th September 2014! We’re throwing a weekend-long American Beer festival with tons of amazing beers to try, live bands, DJs, Camden Town Brewery beer pong competitions, Margherita masterclasses and a Hawkes ginger cocktail bar.
