The Garnon Bushes pub in Coopersale has received Epping Town Council's rosebowl award for its summer floral displays.
The award has been presented annually by the town council since 1990.
The competition is open to all commercial premises in the town.
Landlord Mark Barrigan and landlady Pauline Nicholls received the rosebowl and a framed certificate from Town Mayor councillor Tony Church at Tuesday's town council meeting.
Mr Barrigan said: "The secret is going to a very good garden centre and just really enjoying what we do.
"I do a lot of the planting and my brother does the upkeep. We are really proud that we've achieved this. It means a lot to us."
Town Mayor councillor Tony Church said: "We were impressed by the superb floral displays on show at the pub. These have generated many favourable comments from people and the town council felt that the Garnon Bushes was a worthy recipient of the Rosebowl award this year. "
