Grantham pub pipped to the post in county competition
A Grantham pub has come a close second in a county Pub of the Year competition.
The Campaign forReal Ale (CAMRA) awarded the Nobody Inn, in North Street, second place, just three points behind winners The Strugglers Inn in Lincoln.
Pubs are judged on the quality of their real ale, the service, the venue, community value and whether the pub is sympathetic to the views of CAMRA.
Landlord Eddie Pimlott and his staff were presented with a certificate by CAMRALincolnshire area organiser Bob Foulger.
Grantham CAMRA chairman Rob Hamnett-Day said: “It is brilliant to see such enthusiasm from Eddie and his staff. They always have a smile and will have a good chat over the bar and know the beer they are serving. The Nobody Inn has won numerous CAMRA awards over the years including a special award to Eddie for 20 Years of Service in 2017.”
Eddie said: “It is great to be recognised for the work and effort the team put in to the pub. We love being a small pub in Grantham that is always full of people enjoying a drink and a chat.”
The pub sponsors twofootball teams including ‘Nobody Athletic’.
Mr Hamnett-Day added: “Saturdays are always a brilliant day to visit and enjoy the atmosphere. The Nobody Inn always has at least five well kept real ales on the bar
with live music on every week.”
