A POPULAR pub is in the running for the Malvern Gazette’s Pub of the Year competition.

The Wyche Inn has received a number of votes for our contest, which sees readers voting for their favourite establishment in Malvern, with the winning landlord receiving a trophy and being invited to Parliament by the area’s MP, Harriett Baldwin

Independently run, with seven members of staff, The Wyche Inn is a traditional pub with beautiful views of the Three Counties Showground and beyond, and welcomes locals, walkers and tourists.

All of the pub’s real ales are sourced from microbreweries, with some brewed locally, while there are themed food days such as Tuesday’s steak, Thursday’s curries, Friday’s cod and chips and Sunday’s roast dinners – and all of the meat used is supplied by D.T. Waller and Sons butchers in Ledbury.

Wyche Inn owner Steph Daly said: “It would be very nice if we won Pub of the Year – it would be great recognition. It would mean a lot to us and the staff.”

Voting for the Pub of the Year award is open now and closes on Friday, November 30, so use the slip on this page to support your favourite pub and tell us why it deserves to win.

Anyone can vote, whether a member of staff or loyal customer, but we only accept slips from the newspaper - to avoid any ‘tactics’. The winner will be announced in the paper and on our website on December 7.

Malvern Gazette editor Michael Purton said: “There are some brilliant pubs in the area and we want to highlight their hard work and high standards.”
