Pub Awards


The branch changed the format of its Pub Awards in 2019. A Pub of the Month award is made every 2 months. Each award is themed.

In December, we choose the Pub of the year for the following year. This pub is then put forward as a candidate for the regional Pub of the Year.

For 2021, the winners were :

Pub of the year 2021 - Moonface Brewery & Tap, Loughborough

13 Moira Street
LE11 1AU

Telephone 01509 700171

Opening Times: 4-10 Wed-Fri; 12-10 Sat; 12-8 Sun

A small neat bar which opened in October 2018 in a former warehouse building.

3-5 real ales served direct from casks stillaged behind the counter. Constantly changing range. No keg beers.

The in-house microbrewery is visible in a room directly behind the bar, and started production late 2019.

During the lockdowns of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the pub has been closed, along with all of our other pubs, however beers have been available for take-away when allowed.

Currently (January 2021), pubs are not allowed to supply take-away beer, but Moonface brewery at the rear of the pub is doing take-away and has recently started a home delivery service to customers within 5/6 miles of the brewery.
