The Elbow Room gets top drinkers’ vote
A POPULAR micro-pub has been declared a venue of distinction by local ale connoisseurs.
The Elbow Room at The Crescent, Hinckley, received the honour from the Hinckley and Bosworth CAMRA group.
Lauded by drinkers from near and far, the pub gained the recognition following a vote by members.
Richard Lewin, secretary of the branch, said: “This bar is a novel addition to Hinckley’s many pubs and it does set itself apart from others. The concept and ideas behind it fit in perfectly with the new development at The Crescent.
“The Elbow Room is something different and what it does, it does really well. The beers, ciders, gins, cocktails etc are designed to attract a wide audience and indeed local people of all age groups frequent The Elbow Room.
“Although I can’t speak specifically for the reasons our members voted The Elbow Room to be our pub of distinction, I am sure we all agree that this is a well deserved accolade.
“As a branch, we give awards infrequently, but I hope deservedly, and this enables us to recognise an achievement that is either very special or out of the ordinary.
“I meet dozens of CAMRA members at beer festivals around the country and they will tell you that a visit to Hinckley has to include The Elbow Room.”
The pub was nominated for the award alongside The Greyhound in Hinckley, which came in second and The Globe in Snarestone.
