AA Inn of the Year
Danielle Bushby, Owner of The Farrier, said of their win: “I am honoured and proud to accept this prestigious award from the AA. In 2015 my family and I began a restoration project that would ultimately take three years, but give a new heart to the old soul that was the rather tired, closed down, public house in our village. As we approach our fourth year of trading, I can honestly say that back then we would never have dared to dream that we were capable of what we have achieved and receiving this award has really confirmed for us that everyone’s hard work and determination to go above and beyond, in every aspect of our business, is truly paying off. This is a huge achievement for the whole team at The Farrier and we are all thrilled and excited to be the very grateful recipient of the AA’s Inn of the Year Award 2022.”
