Essex Life - - Food & Drink -

Judge: Suzanne Har­ris Spon­sor: G+G Gallo Highly Com­mended: The Hoop, Stock Highly Com­mended: The Old Crown, Mess­ing Win­ner: The Hare and Hound, Colch­ester

WHAT THE WIN­NER SAID:

We are ab­so­lutely over the moon to have won this award, it is just un­be­liev­able. To win two awards this year is fan­tas­tic, it will help boost the pub even fur­ther and will also help put us on the map. A lot of our cus­tomers come through rec­om­men­da­tions, which means a lot to us. We re­ally lis­ten to our cus­tomers and it is nice to know peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ate all the hard work we are do­ing. Again thank you very much.

WHAT THE JUDGE SAID:

The Hare and Hound is do­ing a lot of good things in the lo­cal com­mu­nity and has set up some new events re­cently, such as cof­fee morn­ings. They also sell var­i­ous es­sen­tial items in­clud­ing milk, bread and eggs to lo­cal peo­ple, re­ceive de­liv­er­ies when peo­ple are out, host an out­reach Post Of­fice ser­vice, have a book ex­change — and there is even a PlayS­ta­tion in a car­a­van be­hind the pub to en­ter­tain young­sters while their par­ents have a drink in the bar!
