Pub of the Year award.

Pub of the Year award.

Archant

Judges were looking for those pubs that know exactly what is required to keep the regulars coming back - whether this was great food, an inventive wine list or acting as a hub for the community.

Winner: The Hare and Hounds

The Hare and Hounds is doing a lot of good things in the local community and has set up some new events recently – including coffee mornings. They also sell various essential items (milk, bread, eggs, etc) to local people, receive deliveries when people are out, host an outreach Post Office service, have a book exchange – and there is even a Playstation in a caravan behind the pub to entertain youngsters while their parents have a drink in the bar! All three pubs employ local people, and have a number of events for the community. All were pleasant to drink in and had a good atmosphere.

Highly commended: The Old Crown - Messing

Highly commended: The Hoop (in Stock)
