The New Inn at Cerne Abbas have won the 2017 Palmers Brewery Food Pub of the Year.
Licensees Julian Dove & Annette Beardsmore with their team in the kitchen beat off strong competition to win the award.
The judges were particularly impressed by how they have balanced an exceptional fine dining menu alongside high quality pub classics like burger, pie and steak nights, traditional Sunday roasts and top end bar snacks all matched to an excellent wine offer and supported by first class service.
‘The New Inn is one of our flagship sites,’ said John Palmer, Chairman & Managing Director.
‘Julian & Annette are doing a brilliant job, unquestionably delivering a fine dining offer that is second to none in the estate and that exceeds the expectations of their guests coming to stay in one of the nation’s top inns.’
