4 of the UK’s best home bars

A man in Shropshire has won an award for his crafting the UK’s best home bar.

With everyone stuck at home, some have more time on their hands than others.

We’ve already seen dozens of examples of creative endeavours online, and with no one able to go to the pub, many have resorted to building their own in the back garden.

On-trade leisure company Liberty Games launched a competition last month to find the UK’s best home bar, and asked people to send in pictures of their handiwork.

Lee Morris, a homebrewer from Albrighton, Shropshire, beat the competition with his well-made, and eco-friendly home pub.

The judges were impressed with the proportioned seating, great spirits selection, beer fridge, beer mats, darts board, optics, and a table football table added in for good measure.

Morris said the pub was made by hand from “a lot of recycled materials”, and although he had had it for seven years, it’s provided a lot of respite during lockdown.


“I’ve had the pub for about seven years and we’ve had many good curry nights. It really does give you that ‘Friday night feeling’.

“I homebrew a lot of beers and use traditional hand pulls to give a real pint feel. Inside the pub I have a fully stocked bar with spirits and optics.”

The pub also contains a log burner, dartboard, cable TV, drums and leather sofas

“I still sit in the pub now and smile to myself about how great it looks, it really is the best space.”
