The Oscars may be around the corner but a Bristol-based pub is already celebrating after scooping a regional ‘pub of the year’ award.

Young's pub Horts, which opened a 26-seat cinema as part of a £300,000 refurbishment last year, was presented with the accolade by the Bristol Tourist Office and will now represent the city in the Visit England Excellence awards which take place in May.

Pub manager Richard Fairchild described the recognition as a “great testimony” to everyone who was involved in the project.

“The inclusion of The Director’s Cut cinema has provided a completely new dimension to our offering and has fast developed its own niche on the Bristol film scene,” he said.

He added the food offering had also improved with a new menu of grazing plates, sharing boards and pub classics.

Accolade

Steve Gallagher, Young’s operations director, said: “I’d like to congratulate Richard and his team for winning this prestigious award. To be recognised by those from the hospitality, leisure and tourist sector is a great accolade.

“The new cinema has been a fantastic addition to the venue and has given it a new lease of life. We have also seen an increase in food sales and private bookings and we wish Richard and his team well for the future.”
