Staff at one of North East’s most popular pubs are celebrating after scooping another top accolade.
The team at City Tavern, Northumberland Road, are toasting their success after the venue was named Best Pub of the Year at the 2016 Tyne and Wear Lifestyle Awards.
The awards, a first of its kind in the North East, were hosted by television network Made in Tyne and Wear as a celebration of the best lifestyle businesses across the county.
Following 40,000 votes, the shortlisted businesses were honoured at the event in front of over 230 guests, including local dignitaries and celebrities.
City Tavern is no stranger to award wins, having previously been voted the “Pub with the Best Pint” in the Star Pubs & Bars awards organised by Heineken, beating more than 1000 pubs from across the country to the title.
