On Monday 24th June The Broom Tavern was awarded Gastro Pub of the Year for the whole of the Midlands awarded by the Midland Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards for 2019.
We sent our application back in February and were very happy to be shortlisted in May before winning on Monday.
The awards were held at Aston Villa Football Club in the Holte Suite where a range of businesses across the Midlands were competing for a number of different awards.
I attended with my business partner Richard Walton and had a lovely evening with food hosted from Mahirs experience, entertainment hosted by Ed James from Heart FM alongside Aston Performing Arts Group.
We came to The Broom Tavern in 2013 and restored this lovely 16th Century building back to life and have been moving from strength to strength ever since.
We have been a regular feature in The Good Beer Guide for the last three years running along with being announced Shakesbeer CAMRA cider pub of the year in 2017.
All our food is homemade from the breads to the ice creams and we strive to source whatever we can locally for both our food and drink offerings to support our local businesses.
So, whilst we have been pleased with these awards so far, our main emphasis at The Broom Tavern has always been our food and we are ecstatic that we have now been recognised for this.
