Voting Form for Heart of Warwickshire Pub of the Year 2018 –Each year, every branch of CAMRA selects a pub in their area as the Branch Pub of the Year.

This is the start of a process that leads up to the CAMRA National Pub of the Year (POTY). To reach this accolade, a pub must win the County (in our case Warwickshire) POTY, the regional POTY (West Midlands) and finally the overall POTY.

For the past two years, the Wild Boar has won this accolade. Please note that our branch has a policy that if a pub wins POTY in two consecutive years that pub will be ineligible in year three to allow other pubs to be considered. So this year the Wild Boar has had to be excluded.

We need your vote!
