“We are absolutely over the moon to receive the award after a tough time through Covid,” said Letitia Slade, who manages the pub’s marketing and social media.

“We opened our doors for a short three days before having to close again due to another lockdown.

“During that time we only offered takeaway, and after making our way through the ordeal, we almost had to start from scratch again.”
