‘We’ve loved ev­ery minute of it’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PUB OF THE YEAR -

THE own­ers of a pub who have just cel­e­brated 10 years of pulling pints are de­lighted that they have been nom­i­nated for Pub of the Year.

Own­ers of The Swan, in Ley Hill, Nigel and Sam By­att put the pub’s suc­cess down to three el­e­ments – good beer, good food and a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment for cus­tomers.

The cou­ple cel­e­brated the an­niver­sary at the pub and threw a party to thank their loyal cus­tomers and staff.

Mr By­att added: “I’m re­ally de­lighted to be nom­i­nated, thank you to who­ever has voted for us. We pride our­selves on the qual­ity of our beer and food, we have been de­vel­op­ing our menu for 10 years and we’re proud of it, we have our best menu ever at the mo­ment.

“I also like to think that we pro­vide our cus­tomers a nice wel­com­ing and re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment. I think get­ting those things right are key, and we’ve worked re­ally hard on those three el­e­ments.”

Mr By­att said they have en­joyed their decade years at The Swan.

He added: “My wife, Sam, and I have loved ev­ery minute of the last 10 years.

“What’s made our time at The Swan so en­joy­able is the warmth and hu­mour of our cus­tomers. We’re so grate­ful to all our cus­tomers for their loy­alty and friend­ship. We look for­ward to be­ing here for an­other 10 years. We love the pub and we love our cus­tomers.”

The pub also joins forces with neigh­bour­ing venue The Crown to put on a free three day beer and mu­sic fes­ti­val over the Au­gust bank hol­i­day week­end.

Thou­sands of peo­ple are ex­pected to flock to the 10th Ley Hill Beer and Mu­sic Fes­ti­val tak­ing place on Satur­day, Au­gust 29 to Mon­day, Au­gust 31.

The fes­ti­val will host a va­ri­ety of live mu­sic both in­side and out­side the pubs, as well as more than 60 real ales and ciders, a bar­be­cue and a hog roast.
