Your Students' Union venues, Tower Bar and The Swan, have both been shortlisted in the Great British Pub Awards 2017!
On Tuesday 27th June, Lincoln Students' Union recieved the fantastic news that two venues have been shortlisted for national awards.
Tower Bar, your Students' Union bar bringing you the best food and drink deals along with the best live sport, has been shortlisted in the Best Turnaround Bar category.
The Swan, your on-campus pub serving locally produced food and a wide range of craft and cask ales in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, has been shortlisted in the Best Student Pub category for the second year in a row.
The standard of entries into this year's awards has been excellent, so it is a fantastic achievement to have made it to the final six in both of these categories. Both Tower Bar and The Swan now stand a chance of being crowned as the national champion for these categories.
James Brooks, Lincoln Students’ Union CEO, says:
"This is amazing news and a great achievement by both venues, The Swan has now been shortlisted on a national level for two years in a row, and then Tower Bar for the first time. To be celebrated on such a national level just shows the hard work that everyone puts in is being recognised within the sector."
Kudzai Muzangaza, Lincoln Students' Union President, says:
"The short-listing of both Tower Bar and The Swan in the Great British Pub Awards really reflects the great work that the Students' Union is doing to ensure that the student experience at Lincoln is the best that it can be. I am immensely proud of that effort, the work behind our commercial services and the fact that our venues are seen in such high regard nationally."
All finalists will be invited to the Great British Pub Awards night on Thursday 7th September in London, where the national champions in each of the awards 17 categories will be announced, along with the overall champion - the Great British Pub of the Year 2017. Fingers crossed for Tower Bar and The Swan!
