As usual, we’re having two awards, one for city pubs and one for country (that is, not in Lincoln) pubs. If you want to see the area covered by the Lincoln Branch, there is a map here. Each member is allowed one vote in each category, which can be made in person, by post, phone or e-mail, see below, up to 5th January 2020. A judging panel, selected at the AGM, will visit the three pubs in each category with the most votes and score them against the criteria used in the national Pub of the Year competition. In addition to beer quality, these criteria include décor, service, cleanliness, community focus and alignment with CAMRA principles, more details here.
