The Overstone Manor is on the hunt for the UK's biggest pub fan.

“From relaxing and socialising with the family to sipping pints and watching the sport with friends – there are so many reasons to enjoy the pub this summer. That’s why we’re launching our search for the UK’s biggest pub fan, to reward them for their service to their local with £1,000-worth of free pub grub and pints.

“If you think you could be Northamptonshire’s biggest pub fan, then it’s time to come forward and tell us why, as we’re giving one dedicated lover of locals the chance to spend their summer eating and drinking in their local Pub & Carvery, without spending a penny!”

The Overstone Manor announced the search after discovering that 79 percent of people ‘love’ their local, with 72 percent agreeing that summer was their favourite season to visit the pub.

A further 71 percent agreed that they had missed the pub during lockdown and 78 percent admitted to now visiting their local at least once or twice a week.

Pints in the sunshine topped the list of things people loved most about going to the pub during summer (22 percent), followed by drinking with friends (12 percent) and enjoying family meals (11 percent).

Following the findings, the Overstone Manor is calling for pub-lovers to come forward and nominate themselves for the chance to take the crown as the UK’s biggest pub fan and spend their summer sipping pints and tucking into delicious pub grub with loved ones.
