Time to nominate your Pub of the Year for 2015

We all have different ideas of what makes a perfect pub.

Do you prefer a cosy traditional ale house, with comfy seats, crackling fire, the happy hum of background conversation and a pint?

One in five of us drinks too much

One in five of us drinks too much

Perhaps it’s the banter and cheer of a buzzing street corner boozer, or gleaming city bar, craft beers and rustic snacks? Yes, pubs are a haven of solace and authenticity.

Tell us who balances charm and history, service and sympathy, a well-stocked bar and hearty food, all pulled together with effortless professionalism.

Who should make the top 10 from our list of nominees, below?

Just fill in the coupon in this week’s Northants Telegraph, out today (Thursday).

Closing date for votes is 10am Friday, October 16.
