Pub Design Awards

The Pub Design Awards were launched by the Campaign for Real Ale as a quest to find the most stunningly designed pubs in the UK. The award, held in association with Historic England, recognises high standards of architecture in the refurbishment and conservation of existing pubs, and the construction of new ones.

The competition includes five categories:

  • New Build: For entirely new built pubs. Judges look for a number of details when assessing the worth of any new establishment. It might reflect its past but without becoming a mere pastiche of Edwardian, Victorian or even Georgian artefacts. Or it could be completely modern, using materials of the 20th or 21st century.
     
  • Refurbishment: Refurbishment can range from a complete gutting and replacement to an enhancement of what was originally there. Refurbishment should suit the individual pub and not be an excuse to use uniform furnishings to brand the pub with brewery or pub companies images.
     
  • Conversion to Pub Use: This is where an existing building is converted to pub use. Pubs are judged on the taste and restraint used on both the outside and inside of the pub.
     
  • CAMRA/Historic England award: This award, sponsored by Historic England, is usually given for work which conserves what is good in the pub to ensure its future for generations of customers.
     
  • Joe Goodwin Award: named after the late CAMRA chair Joe Goodwin - is reserved for outstanding refurbished street-corner locals.
