A website tracking my attempt to publish my own book, "Brighton's Best Pubs". This is a locally produced guide to every pubs and bar in Brighton, the book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Atmosphere, Beer, Barstaff, Food, Entertainment, Decor/Garden and Talent are all rated for each pub/bar. It also features maps, a Club guide and suggested pub crawls.

Brighton & Hove Web Awards: Results

Well, we didn't win, which was kind of a relief as it would have meant going up on stage to make an acceptance speech, which I didn't fancy much. The Ocean Rooms won the prize for "Best Site for a Night Out", but it was still great to be in the shortlisted five sites for this category, especially considering the www.pubjury.co.uk website has had so little done to it in the last six months, and is a pretty basic site.

In fact the plan now is to upgrade the PubJury website to an interactive online database which will be able to take scores/reviews for any pub, anywhere! Very excited about that prospect and the hope that the data will then go on to enable the publication of more books: "Britain's Best Pub", "The World's Best Pubs" and possibly books for certain towns/cities if enough data comes in for specific places.
