The Pandora Inn has won Gold again in the ‘Pub of the Year’ category in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021!
“This is the best news we could wish for – just as things are starting to look more positive and reopening won’t be too far off – we’ve been named Cornwall Tourism Pub of the Year!” says Steve Bellman who, with John Milan, has been at the helm of the Pandora Inn for 21 years.
“This is our fourth consecutive win and brings our tally of Gold awards to eight in total in the last ten years!” added Steve. “Winning awards is hard enough but winning, again and again, shows a commitment to quality and service that the Pandora team, led by managers Lester and Catherine Croft, should be immensely proud of.”
Things were certainly different this year and, as well as the awards being delayed by various Covid restrictions, the judging had to be undertaken differently and there were no mystery visits this year.
Steve said: “Our entry form – along with our online presence, social media activity, reputation management, and our hard work to be a Covid-secure business – have all formed part of the overall results.”
