"With over 1400 votes cast the competition was very competitive so I would like to wish a huge congratulations to the Goats Gate on taking the crown in this years competition. My thanks to the runners up and all the pubs that took part.
"Bury South has a wonderful array of pubs who have all faced a really difficult time over the last year during the pandemic. This competition has been my way of recognising the hard work and magnificent contribution pubs makes to our local economy and our communities.
