A village pub near Thirsk has reached the finals of the Great British Pub Awards for the second time.
The Carpenters Arms at Felixkirk won the Best Freehouse category in the awards in 2011 and has been shortlisted for the same title in 2016.
The awards are organised by leading hospitality publication the Morning Advertiser and a member of the judging team will visit the pub this month to find out more about it and see it “in action”.
The Carpenters Arms is part of the Provenance Inns and Hotels Group, which also owns the West Park Hotel in Harrogate.
Director, Chris Blundell said: We are thrilled to have reached the final stages of this national competition again. It is a testament to the hard work of our team and our policy of providing locally-sourced food at the heart of the communities we serve.
Senior Events Manager at the Morning Advertiser, Stephanie Danvers, said:
The standard of entries to this year’s awards has been excellent, so it is a fantastic achievement to have made it to the final six in this category.
The Carpenters Arms will have to wait for the result until Wednesday 5 October when the champions will be revealed at the Great British Pub Awards at the London Hilton.
