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.
