The highlight of Thursday afternoon was the announcement of the result of the branch’s Pub of the Year 2013 competition (i.e. the current Pub of the Year throughout 2014).

The Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr. Angela Graham, announced the winning pub from the stage at 4pm.

  • 1st. Hand in Hand, 7 Crooked Billet, Wimbledon, SW19 4RQ.
  • 2nd. Old Sergeant, 104 Garratt Lane, Wandsworth, SW18 4DJ.
  • 3rd. Nightingale, 97 Nightingale Lane, Balham, SW12 8NX.
