The team at Bedford’s d’Parys are celebrating this month after being named the best managed pub in the region in the Great British Pub Awards 2015.
The popular pub opened back in Spring 2014 following a £1.3million investment which transformed an old run down hotel into a spectacular pub and restaurant with rooms. The d’Parys team are no strangers to awards having been named one of the top five best new pubs in the country at last year’s Publican Awards.
The Great British Pub Awards, which are also run by leading pub industry magazine The Publican’s Morning Advertiser, search for the very best pubs in the UK. For this latest award d’Parys beat hundreds of pubs throughout East Anglia and the East Midlands and impressed judges with its unique design, eclectic range of drinks and inventive dishes as well as excellent customer service and local support to take the title.
Craig Mayes, Director at Apostrophe Pubs which run d’Parys said: “We are all absolutely thrilled with this award and incredibly proud to be recognised as one of the best managed pubs in the country. We strive to always give our guests the “wow factor” and have been overwhelmed with the support since we opened, in fact we now have people coming from far and wide to sample the delights of d’Parys. However what makes d’Parys really special is the passion and commitment of the entire team here and this award really is a testament to their hard work over the past 18 months.”
d’Parys will now go forward with five other regional finalists from the UK to the national finals of the Great British Pub Awards in September.
