We’re an AA Four Star Gold Inn and among our many awards, we have two AA Rosettes for Culinary Excellence and, in 2017, 2018 and 2019, we were named as an ‘Estrella Damm’ Top 50 Gastropub. Last year we ranked 28th and received a special award as the highest climber in the list. Then, this year (2019) we polled in at number 20, which was wonderful.
We’ve also been named by the AA as the nation’s ‘Inn of the Year’ 2019-20. It’s great to be acknowledged for the hospitality we offer, as well as our food, and for our pub’s lovely B&B rooms.
It is the first time AA Hotel & Hospitality Services has had this particular category, so we’re the first pub to be named ‘Inn of the Year’ by the organisation.
We were awarded the title of Gold Tourism Pub of the Year 2018 at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards too. While in 2017, we won a Gold Tourism Pub award from Devon Tourism Awards and were named Best Dining Pub in the Trencherman Awards.
