Luke Hall, the local Member of Parliament for Thornbury & Yate, welcomed the winners of the first Gazette Pub of the Year Awards to serve up their favourite beers in the House of Commons.
Yvonne Hulbert, landlady of the Rose and Crown Pub in Rangeworthy, was joined by two members of her team, Kelly Iles and Emma Phelps for their day in Westminster. Yvonne brought two tasty local draught beers to promote in the Strangers bar; Hill Climb and Chequered Flag, both by local brewer Prescott Ales, located in Cheltenham.
The Rose and Crown beat off stiff competition from other local finalists to win the Gazette trophy after receiving more than 350 votes.
The Prescott team commented how delighted they were that some of our country’s top politicians could be enjoying a pint of our ale after a hard day in the commons!
