Pubs' Chance to be Crowned Britain's Best Beer Garden

Posted 02/08/16

 

Pubs across the UK could have their beer garden crowned the best, as we launch a nationwide search to discover the most vibrant and picturesque gardens across the UK.

 

With us specialising in providing business insurance to the pub and hospitality sector, we’ve launched the new summer campaign to champion the great British pub and the wealth of fantastic beer gardens available.

 

Publicans, breweries and pub goers alike can all enter by simply submitting images of their beer garden via www.smeinsurance.com/britains-best-beer-garden, with the best ones being judged by criteria such as the most picturesque, best atmosphere and most family friendly. Whether it’s a city centre bar with a modern, alfresco drinking area to attract revellers or a classic traditional country pub, the campaign is open to beer gardens and pubs of all shapes and sizes.

 

Entries must be received before 31 August 2016, with those shortlisted put to a public vote - giving pub goers, customers and local communities the chance to provide their support and vote for their favourite local.

 

As well as having the bragging rights of being awarded the title of “Britain’s Best Beer Garden 2016” by SME Insurance Services Limited (SMEi), the top three pubs will all receive prizes with first place being awarded a £500 gift card which they can use towards treating their team. In addition, a professional photographer will also be commissioned to photograph the winning pub and garden in all its glory.

 

Jonathan Webber, Commercial Director of SME Insurance, said: “There are some stunning beer gardens across the UK, however they’re often largely undiscovered or unappreciated. With summer upon us, we wanted to shine the spotlight on the best outdoor facilities local pubs have to offer and crown the champion.

 

“We provide insurance cover to some fantastic pubs and wine bars, with lots of them attracting many of their customers purely because of their unique and inviting beer gardens. We know the effort which goes into making these gardens special, so if you feel your pub could be number one in the Britain’s Best Beer Garden 2016 competition, we’d urge you to enter straight away!”
