The Turk’s Head in Twickenham was named Best City/Urban Pub at this year’s Great British Pub Awards.
It was up against five other pubs shortlisted for the award, including the King’s Arms in Bexleyheath who were crowned this year’s winner in Best Pub for Entertainment.
About the awards
The Great British Pub Awards brings together the UK’s leading and most popular pubs that enter to win one of the highly coveted awards.
Pubs are invited to enter before they are shortlisted, visited by a judge and finally interviewed before the final winners are revealed.
This year the awards announced a finalist line-up of 97 pubs entered to win across 18 different award categories from Best Pub for Dogs to Best Pub Garden.
This year’s awards saw a “record number” of entries from across the UK before the list of finalists were revealed.
Finalists from up and down the country travelled to Manchester for the award ceremony, held at the O₂ Victoria Warehouse in Old Trafford and hosted by Edith Bowman.
