Congratulations to Grant and staff at the Sandford Park Alehouse on receiving the sub-branch Pub of The Year award.
After a lot of hard work and relentless searching, Grant achieved his ambition to move to Cheltenham to be with his partner, Heidi and to open a free house in the town. There was much red tape to go through as the building is listed (hence no pub sign hanging outside!). There were also problems with dry rot, replacing the staircase, clearing out the dance floor to make it into a cellar, etc. His toil paid off when the pub opened last April and has now achieved this high award from CAMRA. Well done to Grant and his staff
