THE search is on for the Express Pub of the Year 2012.

If you’re a pub landlord, bar manager, work in a club, or just a regular customer and would like to nominate your favourite watering hole then see below for details.

Pubs need just one nomination to go on to the next stage, where they will feature in the Express.

This is when we will ask you to get behind the bar of your choice and vote.

The pub polling the highest number of votes will be declared the winner and will take charge of our engraved trophy and the coveted title of Pub of the Year 2012.

The top scoring pubs in Pontefract and Castleford district and Hemsworth and South Elmsall districts will also receive a vinyl banner to be displayed outside their premises in recognition of their achievement. Two runners-up will get ‘highly commended’ certificates.

You may like the friendly atmosphere, the rockin’ tunes on the jukebox, the live music, the choice of real ales or just the home cooked food. If you do, then submit a nomination and you could be rewarded for your loyalty.

Just send us the name of the pub you want to nominate, the name of the landlord or bar manager (if known), the pub’s address or location and a telephone number, e-mail address or website so we can get in contact with them.

Post nominations to Pub of the Year, Promotions Dept, Express House, Southgate, Wakefield, WF1 1TE. Or email us at promotions@ywng.co.uk and put ‘Pub of the Year’ in the subject line.

You can also drop off nominations into our offices at Pontefract, Castleford or South Elmsall.

Nominations must be received by noon on Friday June 1.
