White Post Inn named Pub of the Year by Somerset Guardian readers
Regulars and customers at the White Post Inn near Midsomer Norton are raising a glass to celebrate its success after it was named Pub of the Year by Somerset Guardian readers.
The popular watering hole and eating place was one of 11 pubs and clubs from the area put forward by readers in the competition to discover the best place to enjoy that drink.
The nomination for the White Post said: "Friendly, hardworking landlord and staff. A proper pub where ordinary people can go just for a drink and a chat in friendly atmosphere. Not many of these left now. Also do good food and always keep a good selection of beers."
Landlord Brendon Pritchard over the moon with the result.
He said: "Fantastic, brilliant and yes really good news for us. I still don't know who nominated us so that is a bit of a mystery. I had expected someone to come in and say."
Mr Pritchard has run the pub with his wife Michelle for almost nine years.
Before arriving at the White Post, Mr Pritchard was a fleet manager and his wife a mortgage adviser.
He said: "I must thank all our customers and regulars who got on board and supported the nomination."
