Do you know the best place in Inverclyde to take your furry friend? Well now is your chance to share their successes – it’s the leashed you can do to show your support.

There are just two weeks left to enter Scotland’s longest running licensed trade awards - dubbed the ‘hospitality Oscars’ – the Scottish Bar & Pub Awards 2022.

Back bigger and better this year, the prestigious annual event is looking for the best dog friendly bar in the Inverclyde area that really raises the woof.

Has your pet enjoyed a puppacino at the Cove? Been a very good boy at Nicolson’s Bar and Kitchen? Or has it brought whole new meaning to the term ‘dog’s dinner’ at Cafe Riva?

At the 27th annual event, category sponsors Antos are looking to hear from staff, customers and community members who would like to see their much-loved Inverclyde establishment take home the coveted accolade.

Nominations are open until 30 June and establishments have the chance to be shortlisted across 18 amazing categories including the Benromach Whisky Bar of the Year, the Molinari Casual Dining Award or the Pernod Ricard Best Late Night Venue.

Last year the Forth Inn in Aberfoyle took home the title of the best dog friendly pub – so do you think you somewhere locally has what it takes to trump it?

The prestigious awards also look to celebrate rising stars in the industry, community-minded establishments and overall give a much-needed boost to those championing the late night economy.

New for 2022, The Molson Coors Scottish Bar of the year award will look to recognise operators that offer something special for their locals, or are full of exceptional teams that make the industry so vibrant and fresh.

Organiser, Susan Young said: “Scotland has the best people and our awards are here to commend those charismatic individuals and their incredible venues that make up Scotland’s unparalleled hospitality landscape. But they need your help to vote for them.

"Reward the efforts of your favourite pub or bar and vote now on The Scottish Bar & Pub Awards website."

To enter your favourite dog friendly bar into this year’s awards, simply vote online to cast your nomination. Every vote counts as the ten competitors with the most votes from each category will receive a visit from ‘mystery shoppers’ before the finalists are revealed.

Following a closed doors judging process, the winners will then be announced at a glittering award ceremony on 30 August 2022 at The Hilton Hotel, in Glasgow.

Voting closes on the 30 June 2022.
