Awards & Publications
We are very honoured, proud and in some cases humble to have been recognised by some of the most important people and publications in our industry. We thank our entire team for working so hard to help us build our pubs and inns in to award winning places and we share all these accolades with them both past and present. We thank our loyal customers for supporting us with such enthusiasm and of course all our suppliers for helping us deliver quality and differentiation to all consistently.
Our seven pubs were either closed down or simply ‘lost causes’ and now they shine brightly for all to enjoy. We do not consider ourselves to be a ‘pub chain’ …….we have always set out to create individual pubs and Inns that offer character and atmosphere with differentiated food and drinks in each. Our people are like family and our pubs celebrate individualism…..that is what makes us special.
