The Yorkshire Bridge Inn in Bamford, Derbyshire, has won gold again at the East Midlands Tourism Excellence Awards 2010.

It is the second year running that the pub has come top in the pub experience category. It also won bronze in outstanding customer service, for front of house staff member Joan Walters.

The self-catering arm of the business, Ladybower Apartments, picked up gold in the sustainable tourism category.

Owner John Illingworth said: "We were thrilled to win the gold award last year but to be awarded gold for the second year in succession is a fantastic accolade. The team work extremely hard and such a prestigious award is great recognition of their dedication and commitment. We receive super feedback about our staff, food and overall hospitality and we are delighted that the judges and mystery shoppers were equally impressed".

The awards have 18 categories ranging from best bed and breakfast and hotel, to best tourism event and visitor attraction. The region covers Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland.
