We are extremely proud, albeit a tad bashful, to announce that The Great British Pub Awards has once again championed The Grafton as one of Britain’s best pubs! The Grafton has recently been announced as winner of the Best Partnership Pub for the South East and London region.
The award recognises licensees that have successfully worked with their pub company (in our case Enterprise Inns) to develop their pub in the past year. We beat some incredible competition from numerous pubs in the region to win the title, so we’re truly tickled pink.
The awards are organised by leading pub industry magazine, the Publican’s Morning Advertiser. Its editor Rob Willock says: “The award recognises the licensees that have been the best exponent of either the leased, tenanted or franchised model over the past 12 months.
“The Grafton has a real partnership approach with their pub company and Susie and Joel are creative and passionate licensees.”
We will now go forward to the Great British Pub Awards 2014 national final, held at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London (SWANKY!), in September. We’ll go head to head with other regional winners for the UK title ‘Best Partnership Pub 2014’ and also have the opportunity to compete for the overall champion of champions title of ‘Great British Pub of the Year 2014’.
WISH US LUCK FOLKS! x
