Inn tipped for top award in na­tional com­pe­ti­tion

Paisley Daily Express - - Get Set For First Round Of Brilliant Beer Festival -

A pop­u­lar vil­lage pub is in the run­ning for a top in­dus­try award.

The Hous­ton Inn was named the best boozer in Ren­frew­shire as the The Na­tional Pub & Bar Awards.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion re­vealed its 94 County Win­ners, which were se­lected on over­all best prac­tice across a num­ber of op­er­a­tional cat­e­gories.

They will be of­fi­cially crowned at a red car­pet cel­e­bra­tion in Lon­don on Wed­nes­day, May 23.

At the grand fi­nal, 15 re­gional win­ners will also be an­nounced, as well as the es­teemed ac­co­lade – the over­all Na­tional Pub & Bar of the Year.

“This pos­i­tive, in­dus­try-boost­ing news comes at a time when clo­sures of pubs and bars are too of­ten fo­cused on in the press,” said Tris­tan O’Hana, edi­tor of Pub & Bar mag­a­zine, which runs the awards.

“The sole pur­pose of the awards is to tell as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble about the in­cred­i­ble busi­nesses that these County Win­ners are run­ning. With 94 triumphant pubs on the win­ners list, chances are that ev­ery per­son in the UK will have an award-win­ning pub near them.“
