There are five categories within the main Pub of The Year (POTY) competition. These are City POTY, Country POTY, Cider & Perry POTY and Club of The Year, with the highest-scoring pub in the Final being named as the overall Branch Pub Of The Year. The Winner then goes forward to the Regional POTY Competition, and subsequently, the National Pub of the Year Competition should it be successful at a regional level. This competition is to be reinstated shortly - Voting will be open to Plymouth CAMRA Branch members from Monday 13th June 2022.
