Branch Pubs of the Year 2024

Pubs of the Year

The voting forms were issued in January, and all branch members were given the opportunity to express support for their favourite pubs.

  • City Pub Of the Year: Globe Inn, North Silver Street
  • Shire Pub of the Year: Redgarth in Oldmeldrum
  • Island Pub of the Year: Helgi's in Kirkwall
  • Club of the Year: Ravenswood in Banchory
