“I was delighted by the standard of entries in this Year’s Pride of Hooky Awards. Some of our winners showed just how high a standard they operate at. I hope many of them will enter the Great British pub Awards, where I am sure they will stand a great chance. I judged the Pub Team Member of the Year Award to make a final decision was very hard given the great people who I met during the judging, Stars all!” Bruce Benyon, Operations Manager, Hook Norton Brewery
