Keeping it real provides welcome lift for landlord
AFTER a disastrous summer which saw it flooded twice in a month, finally something has gone right for The Boat Inn at Ashleworth.
Landlord Ian Lock's mood improved when the Tewkesbury branch of the Campaign for Real Ale handed him its annual Pub of the Year award this week.
He managed to see off competition from more than 100 other pubs to win the prize.
The award, which was assessed over the last 12 months, was based on factors such as its real ales, customer service, food, atmosphere and how the pub was kept.

Ian said: "There are 124 pubs in the branch's area, so I'm delighted to have been chosen for the award."
There has been a pub on the site, close to the River Severn, for more than 400 years.
Ian said the award had been a big lift for him after he had undergone a tough time, with first wet weather in the summer hitting trade and then the flooding having twice led to the pub temporarily closing.
