The National awards which culminate in a National final at the House of Commons offer all MP’s the opportunity to nominate their constituency’s favourite boozer. This award focuses on celebrating pubs in our community and Andrew Stephenson MP will be nominating Pendle Inn as the entrant from the Pendle constituency.

Over 700 people voted on my Facebook page with the Pendle Inn, Barley coming out on top, with the Crown Hotel, Colne and the Europa Bar, Nelson finishing second and third respectively. The Pendle Inn proved popular for its warm welcome and tasty food. I certainly enjoy visiting whenever I can.
