Sheffield Pubs of the Year

Our Pub of the Year competition celebrates our area’s best pubs for drinking real ale that embraces CAMRA’s consumer values.

The winning pubs are selected in a two stage process. We start with all the pubs that have either won a Pub of the Month award over the last year or are listed in the current Good Beer Guide.

  • Membership vote to create a top pubs shortlist
  • Judges visit to rank the shortlisted pubs

The judging team is made up of a variety of people, male and female, young and old, each visits every pub individually and scores the pubs against a set criteria:

  • Quality of real ale, cider and perry
  • Style, decor and cleanliness
  • Service, welcome and offering
  • Community focus and atmosphere
  • Alignment with CAMRA principles
  • Overall impression

We make two main awards, a Sheffield Pub of the Year for the Yorkshire part of our branch area and a District Pub of the Year for the Derbyshire part. Each are the entered into the respective county round for the national competition.

We also participate in the Cider Pub of the Year competition by selecting a pub in Sheffield that offers and promotes a good range of quality cider which we enter in the Yorkshire competition, the winners of which are entered into the national competition .
