Stay in a Pub - Important New Updates

11/05/2018


Yorkshire Life Food & Drink Awards 2018

Stay in a Pub have agreed to sponsor a brand new category, 'Restaurant with Rooms' at the prestigious Yorkshire Life Food & Drink Awards this September. We will be featuring both digitally and in their lifestyle magazine over the coming months and have chosen this publication because:

  • They have a monthly print readership of 115,000
  • Around 90,000 followers on social media
  • Circa 22,000 newsletter subscribers 

We are focusing on Yorkshire because pub accommodation is already well established in this county and we hope to encourage consumers living here to visit pubs in other parts of the UK.

You can vote for this or any other category on their website now.
