Help us pick the best pub or bar in Rugby

What's your favourite pub/bar?
What's your favourite pub/bar?

Nominations are now open for our exciting new Best Bar 2014 competition.

With your help, the award will settle the great debate about the best watering-hole in our region.

The Rugby Advertiser needs you to tell us if your local, your ‘home from home,’ your place of relaxation is the best around.

It couldn’t be simpler to nominate your favourite pub / bar. Simply fill out and return the nomination-form, or send us a text-message, with full details of your favourite local pub / bar.

Whether you’re the bar manager, a member of staff, the landlord or a regular, this is a great opportunity to give your local boozer the recognition it deserves.

You can nominate any local pub / bar, and participation in the contest is free-of-charge.

Once we’ve called time on the nomination period, we’ll compile a list of the most popular nominees. The list will be printed in the Rugby Advertiser, and readers will be invited to vote for their winner.


Text your nomination before 10am on Monday, November 17, 2014, to 65550.

Start your message with the word: HRABAR followed by a space, then the name and address of your favourite pub / bar.

Follow this with your name, your address, and your email-address (if you have one).

Text messages cost 50p plus your standard network charge and should contain no more than 160 characters.

Your text must follow this exact format, and it must be received before the closing date, otherwise it may not be counted but you may still be charged.

Please note: you will receive a reply-message to confirm receipt.


Simply complete the nomination-form and post it to: HRA Best Bar Nomination 2014, Johnston Press, Albert House, Victoria Street, Northampton NN1 3NR.
