Pub’s local gem award

The Old Poets Corner in Ashover has been announced as runner up in a nationwide search to find Britain’s best local gems.

The UK’s leading holiday letting agency, cottages4you called on holidaymakers and locals to nominate the best independent businesses across the UK for its Go Local guide.

The Old Poets Corner was recognised for its extensive range of beers and cider, its excellent customer service and function room facilities and its homemade sausage recipe.

Bill Gibb, Chief Reporter at The Sunday Post and Go Local judge said: “The fantastic value for money and a huge selection of ales make Old Poets Corner a stop-off you’ll be glad you popped into.”
