Have Your Say: GBG 2021

A member is only eligible to vote for a pub if they have actually visited the pub and drank there in the previous 12 months. Each vote can be ranked from -2, -1, 0, 1, 2 depending on the strength of feeling that the member wishes to express.

The voting form and letter for the 2021 Good Beer Guide can now be downloaded using the links at the bottom of this page. The letter contains a full set of instructions. PLEASE, all members use your vote!

Every pub in our branch area is surveyed by volunteer members of the Branch to ensure that if the pub is successful in being included in the GBG, the information in the guide will be accurate. The survey form and guidance notes are also available for download and can be submitted to our Pubs Officer at
