We invite you to nominate those you believe deserve the accolade of Best Publican or Pub Chef of The Year. We also accept self-nomination.

To nominate your candidate, please complete the relevant nomination form.

  • You can only nominate a publican/ pub chef once.
  • If you use any acronyms, please explain what they are (unless commonly known).
  • The deadline for nominations to be received is 5pm, 1 November 2019.

A panel of elite judges will select a shortlist of six nominees per award, before the vote is opened to our publican community.
