Amazing accolades aplenty for four Great Inns of Britain

We are thrilled to announce that four Great Inns of Britain have been awarded amazing accolades recently.

With all 21 Great Inns of Britain carefully hand-selected for their quality hospitality and beautiful surroundings, it seems you love them as much as we do.

The King’s Head, Oxfordshire

The King’s Head Inn in deepest Oxfordshire now boasts the honour of being the Good Pub Guide’s Pub of the Year for 2017.

A classically British institution, the pub is not only a place to taste fine ales and delicious wines but it is a lively centre of social interaction for couples, families and friends alike.

Owner Archie Orr-Ewing said: “As soon as I set foot behind the bar I knew that that was what I wanted to do with my life.”

Driven by a huge determination to give customers what they really want, underpinning this latest honour is fine local produce with a nearby family farm supplying the highest quality beef and lamb.

Shibden Mill Inn, West Yorkshire

The Shibden Mill Inn was also singled out for the quality of its pub by the Good Pub Guide too.

Winning Country Dining Pub of the Year for 2018, this West Yorkshire-based inn is no stranger to fame having scooped The Great British Pub of the Year in 2015.

Owner and chairman of the Great Inns of Britain, Simon Heaton was delighted with the news saying it “is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the entire team.”

The Bull, Isle of Anglesey

Head chef Andy Tabberner hasn’t been at The Bull on the Isle of Anglesey for long but that hasn’t stopped him making a huge impression.

Based in Beaumaris, the Loft at The Bull is now officially the best restaurant in North Wales according to the UK’s biggest restaurant and bar guide, Squaremeal.

Coming 49th in the overall UK standings, “ambitious modern food” and a menu full of “intriguing ideas” ensured the coveted status as North Wales’ best eatery.

With scrumptious delicacies like a local shitake mushroom fritter with hazelnut, Anglesey feta and tarragon on The Bull’s October menu, their latest honour is thoroughly deserved.

The Rose & Crown, County Durham

Based near picturesque Teesdale, The Rose & Crown has received the Editor’s Choice award for the Pubs-with-Rooms category in the 2018 Good Hotel Guide.

A cosy facility dating back to the 18th century, bitters and golden ales taste that much more refreshing after days out exploring the surrounding dales and idyllic market town of Barnard Castle.
