Nearly 100 bars and pubs will now compete for the national title.

Flight Club has been named one of the best bars in the North West in the annual National Pub & Bar of the Year awards 2022.

The popular darts-themed bar on King Street was one of five in the region to scoop a ‘county’ gong.

Flight Club will now go through to the national final where it takes on 93 others on the shortlist for the national title, in London on 22 June, as well as competing for the overall regional title.

Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, which hosts the event, said: “Just from being out in these venues, you can see how much pubs and bars mean to people across the UK.

“With visitor numbers increasing, it’s more important than ever for operators to deliver a standout service during every visit – no matter the business in question.

“These 94 County Winners are wonderful examples of the brilliance of today’s modern on-trade. If you live near one of these sites, make sure you pay them a visit!”

  • The other four North West winners going through are The Church Inn, Mobberley in Cheshire; The Black Bull, Sedbergh in Cumbria; Bowland Beer Hall, Ribble Valley, Lancashire, and Roxy Ballroom in Merseyside.
