A village pub that is no stranger to picking up prizes now has another award to display on its bar.

That’s because the Coach and Horses in Dersingham has been named pub of the year by West Norfolk’s branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) for the second successive year.

Branch officials presented the award, which is the fourth prize the pub has won in the last year, to staff on Wednesday evening.

The Manor Road venue’s victory in 2014 was the prelude to it winning the Norfolk-wide CAMRA award, as well as being voted Bar of the Year by Lynn News readers.

The pub now goes forward to compete for the Norfolk pub of the year title once again. The winner is expected to be announced during the summer.

Landlady Sheila Cawthorne, second right, is pictured above accepting the award from West Norfolk CAMRA chairman Steve Barker, centre right.

Also pictured are, from left, Dawn Bateson, Molly Todd, daughter Helen Roythorne, chef Stuart Hunter, Aleah Gelder and Tracey Melton.
