Four Cotswolds pubs are in the Publican Awards finals

Four shortlisted pubs in the Cotswolds are hoping to win a national Publican Award in 2020 for top quality accommodation.

Four pubs in the Cotswolds have reached the finals of the Publican Awards 2020, shortlisted in the Best Pub Accommodation award.

The pubs include the Frogmill at Shipton Oliffe, near Cheltenham, George Hotel in Shipston-on-Stour, the Porch House and The Sheep on Sheep Street both in Stow-on-the-Wold.

The Cotswold pubs, all operated by Brakspear, have reached the finals in the national competition that is said to reward the ‘cream of the cream’ of the UK pub industry, with the winners due to be announced in London on Wednesday 4 March 2020.

The Best Pub Accommodation Award will be given to the pub group which offers guests the best overnight stay, with judges looking for first-rate comfort and design in the bedrooms, outstanding customer service and a tasty breakfast – with pub visits by professional mystery guests, as well as a panel interview, all part of the judging process.

All Brakspear’s pub rooms are described as being decorated and furnished to high standards with features such as roll-top baths and rainfall showers, super-comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton linens and Nespresso coffee machines.

Simon Stanbrook, general manager at the Frogmill, said: ‘We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Publican Awards. We’re very proud of our beautiful, comfortable bedrooms, which offer our guests an overnight stay with a boutique hotel feel… we’ve got everything crossed for the winner’s announcement in March!’
