Games retailer Liberty Games has launched a competition to find the best home bar of 2020, and some Scottish entries have stood out.

With a prize of a year's free beer, many people have entered the competition which ends on 30 June.

Despite the nation’s best efforts to recreate the Great British pub during lockdown - using backgrounds from their locals on platforms like Zoom and Houseparty - some people have taken it one step further and are installing bars and pubs into their own homes.

To celebrate this, Liberty Games has launched a competition and are on the hunt to find the best home bar.

They are asking the British public to send in photos of their pub-style setup, to be in with the chance of being crowned ‘Britain's Best Home Bar’.

But it’s not just the title the winner will receive - to celebrate the best home bar Liberty Games is giving away a year’s supply of beer to one lucky person.

The best Scottish bars so far

So far the competition has had a good response, but these two Scottish home bars have stood out.

Ken Mack from Inverness has created an extremely authentic pub at home, with space for live music, a pool table and space to drink at the bar.
