Exciting news alert! The Dodo Micropub has been crowned Ealing Pub of the Year 2018! Wow!
I was completely shocked to discover the news but obviously over the moon and giddy with excitement! It’s been a fun week of some really lovely messages, congratulations and good old celebratory vibes down The Dodo. Thank you to everyone who has said nice things and joined in with the general excitement.
It was a very close call, I won by 31 votes and the Owl & Pussycat came 2nd with 30 votes!! Yikes! Can you believe it was that tight?!? I have of course loved everyone claiming it was their vote that won it! Ha ha!
I for one am really glad it was this close. It’s nice to see the Ealing Micropub Mile getting the recognition it deserves collectively and I’m also really bloody chuffed that the top 3 Ealing Pubs were all independent businesses (2 of which are female owned and run – yes girl power!).
What is also really great to see is that the other borough winners (Hillingdon Pub of the Year – Hop & Vine and Harrow Pub of the Year – Beer Asylum) are both new, independent beer businesses, like myself, each doing their own kick-ass, highly admirable thing! What an honour to be winners alongside these guys and I’m very sure we’ll all be partying hard again at this year’s Ealing Beer Festival in celebration!
Thank you to everyone who voted for The Dodo Micropub! You guys absolutely bloomin’ ROCK!!!
The presentation party has been set for Thursday 5th April folks, more details to follow but save the date for now!
