Best Accommodation Operator – 2013 Publican Awards
We’re delighted - winners of the Best Accommodation Operator at the 2013 Publican Awards. The competition was fierce and judging intense with mystery visits, panel interviews and financial scrutiny – but we’re proud that our wonderful team of people at the inns, and the support team back at the centre too, have been recognised for all the hard work that goes in to setting up and establishing a new business.
Tourism Pub of the Year 2012 – 2013
The Millstone at Mellor won The Tourism Pub Of The Year in The Lancashire Tourism Awards 2012-13.
We are also proud to have been highly commended for The Small Hotel Award & The Taste Lancashire Award.
Another 5* Inn
We’re delighted to announce The Millstone at Mellor’s new status as an AA 5 star inn – one of a small, but exclusive club of just 28 in the UK.
‘The Millstone has evolved a lot in the past few years, and this is fantastic news and great recognition for the team’ says Anson Bolton, Chef Patron. The Millstone is now the second Thwaites Inns of Character to be awarded this highest accolade in the classification.
AWARD WINNING REAL ALES
