Wells & Co. Pub Partner Awards 2019-20

The third annual Wells & Co. Pub Partner Awards took place at The Swan Hotel in Bedford on Thursday 12th March, and what an evening it was.

Once again, we at Wells & Co. took huge pleasure in creating time and space to celebrate the hard work and incredible achievements of our Pub Partners. Alongside the conversations, fun times and memories these events always produce, it’s such a privilege to highlight some of the innovation, dedication and selflessness that exists in our pub estate, not to mention raise valuable funds for our corporate charity, Prostate Cancer UK.

With the UK pub industry also in the midst of an unprecedented crisis thanks to Coronavirus, it was also a pleasure to connect and celebrate with our Pub Partners in person one last time before the lockdown began in earnest.

Another record haul of entries made judging tougher than ever this year, and all our winners should be feeling very proud of themselves:
