The Campaign for Real Ale is looking for the most stunningly designed pubs to enter its prestigious Pub Design Awards, held in conjunction with Historic England.
The annual award recognises the highest standards of architecture in the refurbishment and conservation of existing pubs as well as in the construction of new ones. The last Sheffield pub to feature was the Ship at Shalesmoor, which was received a commendation in the 2016 awards for its refurbishment. The Sheffield Tap won the Best Conversion award in 2010.
The Pub Design Awards competition is open to all pubs in the UK and buildings can be nominated by anyone. Entrants may be required to provide additional photographs and plans of the building, so the pub licensee should always be made aware of and approve the entry. Works (building or refurbishment) on any pubs entered should have been completed between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017 inclusive.
Sean Murphy, CAMRA’s Pub Design Awards coordinator said: “The Pub Design Awards showcase the best designed pubs in the country. Every pub in the competition tells a story of huge potential and dedication. Whether that pub is a new build or a much-loved heritage pub restored to its former glory, we want to hear from you.”
The closing date for entries is 31 August 2018. To enter a pub into the competition, simply visit: www.camra.org.uk/pub-design-awards-online-entry.
