They fought off stiff competition from 28 other local establishments to be crowned the winner after all of the pubs were visited by mystery judges who accessed all of the pubs on a number of criteria including quality of food and drink, overall character, friendliness of staff, community spirit and family facilities.
Judges described the imaginative pub as exceptional and commended a range of things including the service, food and atmosphere. They particularly liked the high standard of the website.
Andy Judge landlord of the winning pub, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this award for the second time. We would like to thank all our customers and Aylesbury Vale for all their support.
We love the heritage that goes with pubs and are only too pleased to be seen as an asset to the community.”
