The Linnet wins best food pub in MA awards
The Linnet in Great Hinton, Wiltshire wins Food Pub of the Year and The Plough in Chester is Gastropub of the Year at the Morning Advertisers 2008 Great British Pub Awards

The Linnet in Great Hinton, Wiltshire was dubbed Food Pub of the Year at the Morning Advertiser`s​ 2008 Great British Pub Awards last night.

Owner and chef Jon Furby (pictured, right) was praised for his passion for food and efforts to make some food on the premises, including bread, ice cream and sausages. He was also commended for using as much local produce as possible.

The Plough in Chester, Chesire, won Gastropub of the year. Business partners Phil Harland and Rafael Boydell were congratulated for serving quality food and going one step further with the concept of locally-sourced food.

The garden at the Cheshire pub has been turned into a miniature farm where rare-breed pigs, chickens, quails and turkeys are reared to supply the Globe Pub Company outlet`s kitchen. Another area houses poly tunnels in which root and salad vegetables are grown, while a neglected orchard has been rescued to supply apples, pears and cherries to the kitchen.

The Compasses in Pattiswick, Essex, was the overall winner and named Great British Pub of the Year at the cermony at the Park Lane Hilton in London.
