AVDC Pub of the Year Competition

This year, some three dozen pubs were nominated for the AVDC Pub of the Year Competition. A panel of volunteer judges met in early May, and were assigned a number of pubs to visit. The judges assess each pub on a wide variety of criteria and determine its suitability for a number of categories – Best Overall Pub, Best Family Pub, Best Community Pub and Best Food Pub.

A short list of the best rated pubs was drawn up, and different judges were selected to visit these finalists with a view to selecting the winners of the different categories and the Overall Winner.

For The Unicorn to achieve the feat of being a finalist for nine years running is a feat in itself and the staff should all be commended for making sure the Unicorn is a wonderful, welcoming destination where friends and families can feel at home over a drink or a bite to eat.

In recognition of our consistently high standards and performance over time, last year to underline our achievements, we were presented with a special new award – Consistently Excellent. This year we were invited to host the Awards Ceremony.

We hope you still agree we’re consistently excellent – despite not winning any of the categories this year.
