THERE is still time to nominate your favourite watering hole for the Malvern Gazette’s Pub of the Year competition, with people naming what they consider to be the best pubs in and around the town and the hills.

Barry and Paul Allison sat that the Swan at Hanley Swan is "the most picturesquely-situated pub in the area".

"Against the village green with its towering oak tree and the duck pond across the road, the Swan does not disappoint," they say.

They highlight its "attractive bar area with good selection of real ales, and fine restaurant serving locally-sourced food at reasonable prices", as well as "attentive and friendly staff".

The winner will be announced in the Gazette on December 26, and the landlord will receive a Pub of the Year 2019 trophy and be invited to the Houses of Parliament by Harriett Baldwin.

Voting closes on Friday, December 20, so use the slip in today’s newspaper to name your favourite pub.

We’re now allowing our readers to vote for their favourite pub by email too.

All they need to do is email with the subject ‘MALVERN GAZETTE PUB OF THE YEAR: NAME OF THE PUB THEY ARE VOTING FOR’ and then, in the body of the email, explain why they’ve chosen this pub. The deadline for email votes is Friday, December 20.
