The team at the Roebuck Inn are so chuffed to have got past the ‘fierce judging’ in round two and make it successfully through to two finals of the Great British Pub Awards.
The first final is that of ‘Community Pub of the Year’. In 2020 and 2021 the Roebuck Inn became a community ‘Pub Hub’ and remained open for every one of the 34 weeks of lockdown. During this time the Hub sold and delivered in excess of 20,000 ‘Just Heat’ dishes out to the community. Wine, ale and lager was sold ‘to go’, even a ‘Shrub Hub’ appeared, selling anything from Lavender, to geraniums and the odd bag of compost! Add to this a Hamper business in lockdown 2 and the most amazing fresh fish and chips, hot drinks to go, walkers baps, and ‘Just Heat’ Roast Beef lunches of lockdown 3 and everyone will agree the Roebuck Inn deserves to be recognised as ‘Community Pub of the Year 2021’.
The Roebuck Inn has also made the final of the ‘Best Pub with Rooms 2021’ after many acknowledgements from Alistair Sawday’s, Booking.com and the National press. We are very proud of our bedrooms and all the recognition we have received for them. They are unique in style and comfort and the service we offer in support of the bedroom business to a very high standard.
So a potential double is possible at the awards which are run by the Morning Advertiser, the Pub Industry’s oldest publication.
Please see the letter we received below….
