The Watermans Arms in Pembroke has been announced the winner of Brains’ Leased and Tenanted Pub of the Year 2012.

Adam Sammons and Liz Pullen, licensees of the pub, collected the award and a £1,500 cheque at a ceremony held in Cardiff.

The pair took on the pub in 2010, refurbishing the interior and exterior of the building and introducing a new daily food offer with an emphasis on fresh fish.

Sammons said of winning the award: “We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far. The Waterman’s is a great pub in a fantastic location and to be recognised by Brains is a huge honour.”

Four other pubs also received awards and a £1,000 cheque, including Butchers Arms in Cardiff winning Beer Pub of the Year, Langford Inn in North Somerset as Food Pub of the Year, Old Station in Bristol as Customer Experience Pub of the Year and Ivor Arms in Pontyclun picking up Most Improved Pub of the Year and Best Kept Cellar.
