Hereford Pub Wins Midlands Gastro Pub of the Year 2024!

It was announced at the annual Midlands Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards on Monday evening during a glittering ceremony in Birmingham, that ESL Member – The New Inn, St Owen’s Cross, Hereford has been voted Midlands Gastro Pub of the Year 2024.

To be in with a chance of being shortlisted by the judging panel, the nominated gastro venues, which stretched as far north as Nottingham, had to demonstrate glowing public reviews and feedback from over the past 12 months; be an advocate and champion of the local food, drink, and hospitality scene; and offer fantastic menus showcasing high-quality food and drink.  Once on the shortlist, it was then down to the public to cast their all-important votes.

‘We are all delighted to have won!  This award is extra special to the team because following the original nomination, and then the shortlisting for this award, it was the public who voted us the final winner.  Huge thanks to everyone.  Their votes really did count!’

Thomas Leak, Head Chef

The New Inn, St Owen’s Cross certainly delivers a friendly and very warm welcome as soon as you step through the door.  It’s a great place, set in fabulous Herefordshire countryside, to meet with friends and family to share fabulous food and drink together.

This winning gastro pub provides an informal drinking and dining experience and prides itself on using delicious, locally sourced ingredients when possible.
