Box wins Best New Bar at Publican Awards 2019

We’re very proud to have scooped a prestigious national award and been crowned the Best New Bar in the UK.

We were recognised at The Publican Awards (12 March) which celebrates the best pub companies in the UK. The respected awards are organised by pub trade magazine the Morning Advertiser and have been running for 28 years.

Judges praised our innovative and experiential approach, sleek design and focus on creating a great atmosphere, along with commitment to high quality food, drink and entertainment.

Martin Wolstencroft, our Chief Executive, said: “We are thrilled to win this top award, especially as we only opened in September last year. When we were planning The Box, we wanted to focus on doing things a bit differently, with the aim of creating memorable experiences for our customers. It’s been a whirlwind few months since opening and the bar has been buzzing. A big thank you to our talented and hard-working team including GM, Danny Lewis, and all our customers that have made the venue a success.”

Morning Advertiser Ed Bedington said: “These awards are not easy to win, and simply getting to the finals is quite an achievement with a robust judging process which really puts our finalists and winners through their paces. Judging these awards is real a privilege and it’s reassuring to see some of the great work that is going on in the industry, I’d like to congratulate all our finalists and winners.”

This year, comedian and chat show host Alan Carr hosted the event, which took place at Battersea Evolution in London, on March 12.
