Absolutely.This county, even this region, is filled with exceptional pubs and restaurants and to even be considered among these is a privilege.

“We’re really delighted to have come out on top. It’s something that we, as a pub and as a business, are very happy with. Our sister pub Crown and Garter also won last year , I think. It clearly shows the philosophy of the company is something that people really vibrate with and that goes very well.”
