A SAUCHIE pub has been named the Wee County’s best pub in the National Pub & Bar Awards 2024.

The Mansfield Arms, on Main Street, was announced as the regional winner for Clackmannanshire, joining a range of others in the Northern Scotland sector.

The Mansfield will be crowned at a red carpet celebration in June before going on to compete for the title of National Pub & Bar of the Year.

This is the second year in a row the Sauchie pub has been named the best in the Wee County.

Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, which runs the awards, said: “The fact we had record entries for the 2024 National Pub & Bar magazine tells us two things.

“One is how highly the industry regards these accolades, which is fantastic. But, also, it shows that more operators are in need of really positive and strong publicity to help drive business at the moment.

“Pubs and bars are facing some of the biggest challenges in recent history, so if the National Pub & Bar Awards can help by lifting sales across these venues, then we’re delighted to play our part.”
