Five pubs in south Norfolk have been named as the best in the district as part of a competition deigned to promote the region’s watering holes.
The Green Dragon in Wymondham, the Queens Head in Hethersett, Poringland’s Railway Tavern, the Kings Head in Woodton and the Crown Inn in Pulham Market have been revealed as the five area winners of the South Norfolk Community Pub of the Year Award following a public vote.
The competition has been organised by South Norfolk Council and was launched in June with people voting for their favourite drinking haunt in the five south Norfolk neighbourhood areas.
The winning pubs were also visited by the competition’s judging panel of deputy council leader Martin Wilby, councillor Alison Thomas, who represents Hempnall, Terry Stork from the Pub is The Hub scheme and Eastern Daily Press community editor for Diss Anthony Carroll.
The judges had to choose which pub of out of the five will be named as overall winner of the competition and be handed £1,000 to organise a community event.
The winner of South Norfolk Community Pub of the Year Award, which is in its seventh year, will be revealed at a special event at the council’s headquarters in Long Stratton on September 7.
Mr Carroll said: “It was a pleasure to visit the pubs and see how they are proud to be part of the community.”
The five neighbourhood areas are Tas Valley, Waveney Alley, Tiffey Valley, Eastern Rivers and Northern Rivers.
