The Trencherman’s Guide announced their 2023 awards, with The Castle Inn, part of the Exclusive Collection, taking home the ‘Best Trencherman’s Pub’ award.
The quintessentially British pub, located within the historic town of Castle Combe was listed as the best pub across the UK. This news is welcomed by the team following the arrival of new Head Chef, Jamie Barnett (Lucknam Park, Lygon Arms, Bowood) who joined back in May 2021, who joined the team and weaved his own personal touches into the true ‘pub experience’.
Barnett updated the menus to highlight traditional gastropub hearty-fare, made with the very best local ingredients, whilst also building a brand-new team, who bring a wealth of hospitality experience. The latest accolade is true testimony to the hard work and determination of Jamie and his team.
The birth of the Trencherman’s Guide in 1992 came in the wake of one of the most exhilarating periods in British cooking, and The Castle Inn’s team could not be happier to take home such a prestigious award.
