We are delighted to have been awarded Silver in the ‘Tourism Pub’ category of South West Tourism Excellence Awards last night (7 February 2019). Well done team Pandora!

“Congratulations to the team for another great performance,” said Steve Bellman who, with John Milan, will this year be celebrating 20 years at the helm of the Pandora Inn.
This year’s award ceremony was held at Aerospace Bristol and made for a stunning setting. With Concorde celebrating its 50th anniversary since the maiden flights in 1969, the awards ceremony was held under the plane’s wings!
Winners were spread across the whole region from Wiltshire and Dorset in the East to Cornwall in the West, and from Devon in the South to Somerset, Bristol, Bath and Gloucestershire in the North. All entrants in the South West underwent a rigorous short-listing process with 472 being visited by a team of 51 mystery shoppers. Entry was free, and all entrants received feedback, valued by entrants as one of the top reasons for taking part.
