A quaint little spot in Oxfordshire has been nominated at the 2024 Great British Pub Awards.

The prestigious awards are highly respected in the food and drink industry. A nomination, let alone a win, can often be seen adorning the inside of any pub nominated.

Judges said they received “an incredible number of entries” - but have whittled them down to the very best across the country.

This year, a cosy little spot in Oxfordshire was nominated for 'best sustainable pub'.
