editorial image

Vote for your favourite pub with this week’s Banbury Guardian.

We’ve got our top ten finalists for the Pub Of The Year 2017 and now the competition is all about finding who will be number one

You’ve given us ten mouth-watering candidates and now it’s time to ensure your favourite nets the top spot.

Do you prefer a cosy traditional ale house, with comfy seats, crackling fire, the happy hum of background conversation and a pint?

Perhaps it’s the banter and cheer of a buzzing street corner boozer, or gleaming town centre bar, craft beers and rustic snacks? Your vote will tell us who is going that extra mile to make their pub worthy of our title for this year.

So who do you want to win? To vote from the list, simply return the coupon in this week’s Banbury Guardian (out today, Thursday October 26), stating the name, address and voting number of the pub you wish vote for.

Closing date for nominations is 10am, Friday November 24, 2017.

Please be aware entries hand-delivered to our office in Banbury – and photocopied or defaced coupons will not be accepted.

Coupons that are received after the closing date will also not be accepted.
