2012 Pub of the Year Results

The votes are in and the results have been counted...

Thank you to everyone who voted, in the end we had far more than in previous years. It's great that so many more members have been able to contribute to the awards.  52 different pubs were nominated in the voting - a third of the branch's pubs!

We award 3 different awards in Town and Rural categories plus the overall Pub of the Year crown. This graphic explains how the votes were used in conjunction with beer scores to arrive at our title winners. 

So without further ado...the results.
