Vil­lage pub’s food among UK’s best

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Ru­ral pub­li­cans have made it through to the na­tional fi­nals of the Great British Pub Awards.

John, Karen and Char­lotte Mar­shall run The Ge­orge Restau­rant and Bar in the vil­lage of Mo­lash.

The fam­ily has beaten plenty of com­pe­ti­tion to be nom­i­nated as fi­nal­ists in the Best Food cat­e­gory in the an­nual awards.

It fol­lows two rounds of foren­sic scru­tiny by judges, and the pub will now be up against four other pubs in the fi­nal.

The Mar­shalls face a fur­ther round of judg­ing, be­fore the re­sult is an­nounced at a glitzy cer­e­mony at the Lon­don Hil­ton Ho­tel in Park Lane.

Mrs Mar­shall said: “The Ge­orge is a fam­ily af­fair and I’m thrilled that we’ve got this far. We’re look­ing for­ward to show­ing the judges what makes our venue so spe­cial.”

The pub is part of the Punch Tav­erns group.

The awards cer­e­mony will take place on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 7.
