A Suffolk village pub has been nominated for a top national award - just a couple of years after being rescued from closure.
Butley’s Oyster Inn was nominated for Parliamentary Pub of the Year award by Suffolk Coastal MP Therese Coffey, who had asked her constituents to get in touch with suggestions.
The pub, whose future looked uncertain back in 2016, has since undergone a major refurbishment and now hosts its own shop, brewery, and cinema.
Judi Newman, who owns the pub with husband Andrew, said: “We are so delighted to be nominated for Parliamentary Pub of the Year and are very grateful to Therese Coffey for putting us forward.
“We were particularly chuffed when Therese explained that she had put a call out to the public for which pub to nominate, so it was lovely that our customers voted in support for us.”
Dr Coffey has visited every pub in her constituency.
