A Worksop pub has been chosen as one of the county’s favourite places to enjoy a drink after being shortlisted in one of the top six categories at this year’s Nottinghamshire Best Bar None awards.

The Ashley Hotel, Carlton Road, received Best Bar None status after demonstrating that the pub is safe, responsible, well operated and complies with relevant legislation.

The Hungry Horse pub has now been shortlisted for the Suburban Chain Venue award, which will be announced at the awards ceremony on Monday, October 26.

Marc McGuigan, business unit director for Hungry Horse, said: “It is fantastic that the team at The Ashley has been acknowledged for its hard work. All of our pubs take pride in being family-friendly, welcoming and part of their local community and the Best Bar None awards recognise and reward these qualities.”

Charles Blakemore, who manages the pub with his wife Joanne, added: “It is great that the Ashley is now an accredited Best Bar None pub but we would also absolutely love to win the Suburban Chain Venue award and are asking all the people of Worksop to show support for their local by voting for us!”
