Inveraray’s George Hotel won the coveted Pub of the Year accolade AND Hotel Bar of the Year at the 24th annual Scottish Bar and Pub Awards, organised by Media World, publishers of Scottish licensed trade magazine, DRAM.
The event is the longest-established awards of its kind in Scotland.
Pub of the Year was in recognition of The George being the crème de la crème out of all the awards winners on the night, while in the Hotel Bar of the Year category The George saw off stiff competition from Dakota Hotel Glasgow, The Raeburn in Edinburgh and East Kilbride’s Torrance Hotel.
The George has been in the Clark family for 158 years and Chris Clark picked up the awards on the night – including a handsome mirror for Sunday Mail Pub of the Year inscribed with the pub’s name.
There was also success at the awards for another Argyll and Bute business, with Campbeltown's Ardshiel Hotel winning Whisky Bar of the Year.
