We were ecstatic to have been recognised as County and Regional Winners at the National Pub & Bar Awards this summer!
We first got the news that Malones had won best pub in the City of Edinburgh back in April, and were invited to the summer awards ceremony where we’d be competing against other best in their county pubs for a series of regional and national titles.
Our management team headed down to London for the ceremony alongside some incredibly tough competition, and were thrilled when Malones went one step further, winning the regional prize for best in Southeast Scotland!
As a sports and live music pub, the judges appreciated our lively match day atmospheres and the unique entertainment value of our live music nights, featuring talented local musicians.
Also noted by judges was our eclectic décor, our murals and comfortable upholstered seating with tables made from upcycled whiskey barrels offer a unique and friendly interior.
The quality of our pints and drinks offering also helped us to cinch the award, as did the friendly, helpful attitudes and hard work of all our staff!
On winning Best Pub in Southeast Scotland, our area manager Neil Bowie said:
“In light of what has been a tough few years for many businesses as well as current rising costs, it feels incredible to have some positivity and be recognised in an extremely competitive field. Winning this award is a massive credit to all our hard-working staff – a just reward for their positive attitudes and buying into Malones’ philosophy of creating a home away from home atmosphere. As a team we are excited to continue progressing the bar forward.”
