High­way­man scoops top award

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

A PREST­WOOD pub has beaten off stiff com­pe­ti­tion to be named one of the best in the Chilterns.

Twenty-eight pubs were nom­i­nated by nearly 250 walk­ers and cy­clists in this year’s Chiltern So­ci­ety’s Favourite Walk­ers and Cy­clists Pub Award.

The High­way­man, on the Berk­shire/Ox­ford­shire bor­der, was voted num­ber one and was pre­sented with a tro­phy by the Chiltern So­ci­ety to stand on the man­tel­piece by the bar.

The an­nual com­pe­ti­tion is di­vided into three re­gions and as well as be­ing the over­all win­ner, the High­way­man won the South Chilterns re­gion.

ONE OF THE BEST: The High­way­man pub in Prest­wood

The Cen­tral Chilterns win­ner was the Pole­cat Inn in Prest­wood and the North Chilterns win­ner the Valiant Trooper in Al­bury.

The so­ci­ety’s head of mar­ket­ing and mem­ber­ship Vicky Blane said: “Our an­nual food and drink award is a great op­por­tu­nity for us to pro­mote lo­cal Chilterns busi­nesses and shout about some of the won­der­ful things that are hap­pen­ing in our lit­tle ru­ral corners.

“The High­way­man hit ev­ery sin­gle cri­te­ria put for­ward by our vot­ers, and it re­ally is rather spe­cial.”
