St Albans Festive Pub of the Year to be decided
1:41pm Monday 9th December 2013 in News
This year's Festive Pub of the Year competition will be decided on Friday December 20.
Nineteen pubs have been entered by Review readers and they will all be put to the test over the next ten days by our mystery drinkers. More than 220 nominations were received.
Each establishment will be assessed on a number of different criteria including the decorations, the level of Christmas cheer on show from staff and of course, the pub's Christmas menu.
Our Retailer of the Year committee - which comprises of the Review, St Albans District Council, St Albans Chamber and St Albans Civic Society - has challenged city centre pubs to push the boat out in a bid to be crowned St Albans Festive Pub of the Year, a title won by The Portland Arms last year.
The group will also judge shop windows and will hand out an award for the most festive shop window in the city centre.
Pubs nominated this year are:
White Swan, Upper Dagnall Street
Farmer's Boy, London Road
The Goat, Sopwell Lane
The Peacock, Hatfield Road
Bar 62, Catherine Street
Hare and Hounds, Sopwell Lane
Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Abbey Mill Lane
Rose and Crown, St Michaels Street
Waterend Barn, St Peters St
Slug and Lettuce, Victoria Street
