The El­bow Room gets top drinkers’ vote

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.

The El­bow Room at The Cres­cent in Hinck­ley has been voted the 2017 pub of dis­tinc­tion by mem­bers of Hinck­ley and Bos­worth CAMRA. Pic­tured: Wendy and Tim Arnold re­ceive the cer­tifi­cate from CAMRA chair­man David Finn.
