By James Young | 20th February 2020
A Gloucestershire pub is celebrating a hat-trick of award wins - including being crowned the best in Britain.
The owners and staff of The Kings Head Inn at Bledington near Stow-on-the-Wold have scooped three prestigious awards.
The Good Pub Guide have named The Kings Head Inn as their National Inn of the Year and County Dining Pub of the Year for Gloucestershire.
Further recognition has come with The Good Beer Guide giving special recognition for being in the ale drinkers' bible for 20 years.
Owned and run by husband and wife team Archie and Nicola Orr-Ewing and a dedicated team, The Kings Head has always been well-known in the area.
But owner Archie Orr-Ewing is thrilled to see his pride and joy claiming national attention.
"This is a stunning area, we are close to Kingham and Stow on-the-Wold and are surrounded by the amazing Cotswold countryside that gives us such great ingredients for our kitchen team," he said.
"A lot of our meat is sourced locally as well as our vegetables. We are lucky to be surrounded by so many great farms and producers.
"We had some great lamb brought in the other day that went straight onto the specials board as well as being used in a starter of a Harissa scotch egg with puy lentils, feta cheese and a spicy chipotle mayo.
"We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved here as a team and are grateful to everyone who continues to come and visit us and enjoy our food, beer, bedrooms and hospitality.
The couple's other pub, The Swan Inn in Swinbrook, has also recently been awarded Oxfordshire Dining Pub of the Year also by The Good Pub Guide.
