Local pub named amongst UK’s best

A Salt pub has been named as one of the top inns in the UK by a national publishing company.

The Holly Bush Inn, was one of four pubs from across the country nominated for the prestigious Les Routiers 2014 Inn of the Year award.

The pub was chosen ahead of hundreds of other establishments based on performance, customer feedback, reviews and recommendations.

Geoff Holland, landlord at The Holly Bush Inn said, “Everybody at The Holly Bush Inn is delighted to receive such high recognition.

We are dedicated to proving high quality, locally sourced and homemade meals in a relaxed friendly environment whilst offering excellent customer service and value for money.”

The Holly Bush Inn is widely recognised as the second oldest licensed pub in the UK, with origins claimed to reach as far back as 1190.

Tina Griffiths, customer service executive at Les Routiers said, “The judging committee reviewed each pub against the criteria which includes hospitality, customer service, quality of food, standard of accommodation, performance, feedback from customers and subscribers, and going above-and-beyond standard requirements.”

Mr. Holland recently celebrated 20 years as landlord of The Holly Bush Inn, winning Staffordshire Dining Pub of the Year, Les Routiers Dining Pub of the Year, and British Food Pub of the Year.
