A popular pub based in a village just outside Aylesbury won an award at a recent ceremony.

The Chandos Arms, which is based in Weston Turville, were crowned the ‘best community pub’ by its parent company, Wells & Co, in the 2022 Pub Partner Awards.

The Main Street boozer won the prize after the judges were particularly impressed with the pub's commitment to their locals, not just through the pandemic, but ever since.

Judges said the team at The Chandos ‘went above and beyond’ and ‘consistently engage with their locals making them a real asset to all that visit.’

This award, sponsored by Coca-Cola, recognises pubs that have catered to their locals, whether it be charity events, supporting local groups, and host events and reasons for different people in communities to visit their pubs.

Stewart O’Neill, the landlord at the pub, said: “We as a team were amazed with the win.

"It was amazing to be recognised for the hard work we all put in.
