The Publican Awards 2015

Monday evening saw the biggest pub industry event of the year.  Infamous within the trade, the Publican Awards, sponsored by the Morning Advertiser, celebrate the teams behind our great nights out!

Grosvenor House was heaving with 1,300 guests supporting the food and drinks industry and the worthy finalists of the prestigious awards themselves. David Walliams hosted the evening and presented 19 awards with his unique style and quirky humour.

Oakman Inns won 3 awards including Best New Pub/Bar with The Beech House, St Albans.  Business Leader of the Year went to Mike Tye of Spirit Pub Company who was on holiday in Vietnam, so Chris Welham, MD of Spirit Leased Pubs collected the award on Mike’s behalf.

The evening for me continued in the Red Bar at Grosvenor House…

red bar…where I was lucky enough to be introduced to Lanson‘s newest delight, Pere et Fils (Father and Son)…

Lanson…you won’t find it at the supermarket, so do ensure it is on the champagne list when making any future table reservation!
