ICRTouch proud to sponsor 2023 Pub & Bar Awards

Here at ICRTouch, we’ve been collaborating with the hospitality industry for the past 20+ years, developing electronic point of sale (EPoS) software. Our goal has always been to help pub and bar owners save time and increase revenue. Our all-in-one solution of seamlessly integrated products is specifically developed to handle the fast-paced environments of pubs and bars, enabling owners to work smarter, not harder.
National Pub and Bar Awards

But we’re more than just tills and EPoS – ICRTouch solutions cover every aspect of hospitality businesses. Our flexible software helps manage customer loyalty, receive orders from multiple channels, handle stock efficiently, automate reservations and so much more. 

We take pride in the success stories of the businesses we’ve had the privilege of supporting over the years, and are delighted to now be a part of the National Pub & Bar Awards team. We recognise the integral, positive impact that pubs and bars have on our communities and we’re excited to celebrate some of the UK’s best!

Congratulations to all 94 county winners across the country. We’re looking forward to celebrating at the official awards ceremony on 28th June in London where the regional winners and the overall UK’s best pub/bar will be announced.

Special congratulations go to our local pub, The Fighting Cocks, who picked up a county award win!
