The Horseshoes is one of 94 pubs and bars across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that have scooped up a prestigious County Winner title as part of the 2022 National Pub & Bar Awards.

They have been selected on overall best practice across a number of operational categories and will be officially crowned at a red carpet celebration in London in June, where 15 Regional Winners will also be announced plus the top prize.

“With visitor numbers increasing, it’s more important than ever for operators to deliver a standout service during every visit – no matter the business in question. These 94 County Winners are wonderful examples of the brilliance of today’s modern on-trade. If you live near one of these sites, make sure you pay them a visit!”
