As part of the awards process the North East is split into three county boundaries - Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear.

For the Durham region, The Bay Horse in Hurworth, near Darlington was given the top spot while The Crown Inn in Humshaugh, north of Hexham was given the Northumberland title.
