‘We really are looking for the cream of the crop – a licensee who excels not just in business, but in people skills, training, customer service, food quality, marketing and innovation – they really must be the full package’

‘We are very proud that two Palmers licensees have made it to this stage of such a prominent national competition’, added John Palmer, Palmers Chairman & Managing Director.

‘To have two pubs competing at this level really demonstrates that pubs are thriving in West Dorset, it is great news for the industry and brilliant for West Dorset tourism. We wish Paul, Sam and their teams all the best for the next stage in the competition.’
