A roster of Scottish pubs has been named among the best in the UK after local winners for a prestigious industry accolade were revealed.

The National Pub & Bar Awards 2024 named their county winners across England, Scotland and Wales, with the grand final in London to be held on June 26 which will decide regional winners and the overall pub winner.

Discussing this year's event, Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, said: “The fact that we had record entries for the 2024 National Pub & Bar Awards tells us two things.

“One is how highly the industry regards these accolades, which is fantastic. But, also, it shows that more operators are in need of really positive and strong publicity to help drive business at the moment. Pubs and bars are facing some of the biggest challenges in recent history, so if the National Pub & Bar Awards can help by lifting sales across these venues, then we’re delighted to play our part.”
