Located in Chew-Magna just outside Bristol, Pony & Trap has long been a mainstay of this esteemed list, which is decided upon by industry professionals. Having featured in the top five for four consecutive years, this most recent announcement shows that the only way is UP for Pony & Trap! With The Sportsman being placed at number one and The Star at Harome at number three, Pony & Trap is sandwiched between great company, underlining the lists reverence.
“It’s always an honour to have your name mentioned alongside some of the best in the business, just to be featured alongside the likes of The Star at Harome and The Sportsman is praise enough. What is special about this award is that it is decided upon by some of the most experienced heads in the industry. To be named the second best pub in the country is absolutely brilliant. My kitchen and front of house teams have both worked incredibly hard this past year and I couldn’t be more proud of them, this is a great win for everyone at The Pony & Trap.”
A brother and sister team, The Pony & Trap has been under the ownership of Josh and Holly Eggleton since 2006 and has earned them a stellar reputation for exceptional quality throughout the years. The Pony & Trap has held a Michelin Star since 2011 and continues to dazzle the industry and diners alike with its individual take on the best of British ingredients.
