The Thirsty Bear named finalist in The Great British Pub Awards Best Sports Pub!

The Thirsty Bear has been named one of 6 national finalists in The Great British Pub Awards, Best Sports Pub category.

With TableTab iPad menus and PourTab self serve beer taps, sports fans at The Thirsty Bear don’t need to miss a minute of the match to order their food or drink. While pub-goers around the country face the agonising decision of missing the match or waiting to join the dreaded half time bar queue, at The Thirsty Bear they just keep their eyes on the action while pouring their own beer, or tapping their iPad to order anything they need.


"With the taps and the iPads the venue became hugely popular for the sport" said General Manager, Giulio Cassini. "Recognising this we made sure we appealed to sports fans in all other parts of our offering as well. There’s not a table in the pub where you can’t see at least one screen, and with every screen able to show a different event we try to accommodate anything our customers want to watch".

For The Thirsty Bear to be recognised by the Morning Advertiser in such a respected competition is a great endorsement of TableTab and PourTab. It is also a great achievement for Giulio and his team who have gone the extra mile to make it such a great place to watch sport.

We wish The Thirsty Bear the best of luck in the final round.

The Great British Pub Awards is a prestigious competition that has been recognising the best pub operators in the country for the last 17 years. The winner will be announced on 7th September.
