A North Devon pub is celebrating coming top of the South West in two categories in the Great British Pub Awards.

The Pig on the Hill in Westward Ho! scooper both both Best Newcomer and Best Pub Loos in the regional finals.

Owner Matt Samuel said he was very excited to take his team to the ceremony in London on September 11.

“We have a fantastic team here and we have worked really hard over the past year so to have that recognised by the judges was fantastic,” he added.

Rob Wilcock, editor of Publican’s Morning Advertiser who run the awards, said: “The judges were really impressed with Matt’s innovative ideas, strong business sense and relentless hard work, which has helped double the pub’s turnover.”
