We are pleased to announce that our client Admiral Taverns, the UK’s largest independent tenanted and leased pub company, has been named Pub Company of the Year at the Publican Awards, hosted by leading pub trade magazine The Publican’s Morning Advertiser (PMA).
The community-pub specialist won the national award before an industry audience at a ceremony held at Grosvenor House on central London’s Park Lane, seeing off strong competition from three other finalist companies.
The coveted prize caps a remarkable period for the group, in the teeth of what the pub industry had dubbed the perfect storm. The awards judges noted the strength of its performance in the past 12 months in particular.
Of the victory, Admiral managing director Kevin Georgel, said:
The rigorous awards process began shortly before Christmas when companies submitted entries for the awards. This was followed by paper judging, judges’ visits to both individual pubs and company headquarters, plus a day of questioning in London – with finalists facing a panel of expert industry judges.
Congratulations Admiral Taverns!
