The Community Pub of the Year National Awards
November 21, 2011 at 9:24 PM
So following our award of South East Community Pub of the Year we set off for the Hilton Hotel in London's Mayfair in the heart of the west end.
The ceremony was hosted by comedian, impressionist and Strictly Come Dancing contestant Rory Bremner with over 600 of the industries elite in attendance. We were treated like Royalty for the evening, wine flowed & the food was wonderful. We then danced till the early hours.
So what about the awards, well our little pub from a quiet back road in the New Forest town of Ringwood came runner up in the 'National Community Pub' of the year awards.
At first we were disappointed but as it was pointed out at the time, we really had come second out of 57,000 pubs in the UK. So in reality this is an amazing achievement in itself.
We would like to thank everyone who uses the Tavern for helping us to win this prestigious award.
