Nothing sums up the spirit of Aylesbury Vale quite as well as the cosy country pub, of which thankfully there are many.
Nominations are now open for the 2014 Village Pub Competition.
The annual competition, set up in memory of ex-district councillor Ted Payne and now in its 16th year, marks the important role a village pub plays in the local community, particularly where there are few other meeting places in the village, such as a shop or post office.
This year we have included a new category 'Best non-food pub', which joins All Round Winner, Best Food, Best for Community and Best for Family.
Each pub only needs one nomination to trigger a mystery shop visit, so make sure your favourite pub is included by completing the nomination form at the bottom of the page.
To nominate your favourite pub, click here. Nominations close on Friday 2nd May.
The Village Pub Competition is sponsored by Dayla.
