Last week was the biggest awards night of the year: our 2015 Pints & Pistachios Awards for best new pub
Back in June, we shortlisted 30 of the best new pubs in the UK and asked you to vote for your favourite. And you did vote, in your thousands.
The result was announced last week at a ceremony at Meantime’s Old Brewery in Greenwich. The shortlisted pubs were in attendance, our beer collaboration with Meantime, Fool’s Gold, was on tap, pistachios were in abundance and the tension mounted as the hosts, ShortList’s Martin Robinson and Howard Calvert, counted down the top 10 pubs.
Over the page you’ll find the final results in full, but if you’re shouting at the page “Tell us now ShortList, I don’t have time to turn the page”… all right, we’ll tell you – the winner was Temple Brew House in London.
The pub, which opened last autumn and features a microbrewery, celebrated the victory heartily at the ceremony. “We’re thrilled,” said the pub’s operations manager, Laura Carr. “We’re really proud of all the team after their hard work. Thanks to all those who voted for us. We rely on interaction with our customers, especially when it comes to telling us which beers they love.”
We also had a new award this year: Meantime’s Craft Beer Hero, given to a member of staff from a shortlisted pub for outstanding service to craft beer, won by Singer Tavern’s Michele Bove.
