THE team at The Rose & Crown in Nympsfield are celebrating after learning the venue has just been named a Tripadvisor 2021 Travellers’ Choice award winner.

The award is the result of Tripadvisor reviews and ratings given by visitors over the last 12 months.

Owner Ross Sanders said: "After almost a year of closure we couldn’t wait to reopen, safely and within the strict guidelines.

"After £50,000 of investment while closed to develop a hidden garden and boutique bedrooms it has been a real surprise and honour to receive this recognition.

"Our team make this little pub a home from home, serving amazing local produce to the local community."

Kanika Soni of Tripadvisor said: “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses.

"What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety.

"The Travellers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent - delivering quality experiences time and time again, even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience provided to guests in the midst of a pandemic.”
