Ten gardens, one winner. The competition is on for Britain’s Best Beer Garden 2016.

The public, with the help of a team of judges, will decide which of the Best Beer Garden finalists deserves to take home the gold. 

The winner will receive the grand title and a professional photo shoot of their garden.

Jonathan Webber, commercial director of small and medium sized business insurance provider SMEi, which organised the competition, commented: “Britain’s Best Beer Garden has certainly captured the imagination of the nation’s pub goers and publicans.

“It’s now up to the public and our independent judging panel to decide the winner.”

The closing date for votes is Wednesday 28 September and the winner plus the two runners up, will be announced on Friday 30th September 2016.
