It's celebrations all-round for one pleased pub, as it's recognised with an excellence award.

Kirkbride's Inn at the Bush is officially one of the greatest pubs around, being named the 2020 Tripadvisor Traveler's Choice Excellence winner.

Based on a full year of reviews, before the pandemic-related changes to business, winners are recognised for their consistently wonderful feedback.

And owner Colin Smithson and manager Steven Williams couldn't be more excited by the news, and are over the moon to be ranked in the top 10% of hospitality businesses across the globe.

“We couldn’t be prouder of our staff and all of our great customers, who have continued to patronise us during these difficult times,” the thrilled owner said.

But the thanks to their devoted customers doesn't stop there, as manager Steven is offering his visitors a special treat to show his gratitude for their loyalty and support during the pandemic.

With the Eat Out to Help Out scheme officially at an end, the pub is continuing to offer guests 30% of all meals and drinks, including alcoholic drinks, throughout September.

Chief commercial officer at Tripadvisor said: “Winners of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition.

“Although it’s been a challenging year for travel and hospitality, we want to celebrate our partners' achievements.

"Award winners are beloved for their exceptional service and quality.

"Not only are these winners well deserving, they are also a great source of inspiration for travelers and diners as the world begins to venture out again.”

Due to overwhelming demand, all those wishing to visit the inn are asked to book in advance.
