A HENLEY pub has been presented with a certificate after it was named runner-up in the Best Thames Local 2014 Awards.
The Little Angel was one of 27 contenders in the pub category of the awards, which are organised by the River Thames Guide for pubs in the 40 towns along the river and decided by an online vote.
It won the title in 2010 and has been in the top 10 in previous years. Lolly Green, of Splash Inns, which owns the pub, said: “We’re delighted — even coming second is fantastic considering we’re part of 215 miles of the River Thames and thousands of pubs. It’s testament to a cracking team.
“We thank all our customers and people who voted for us. We’ll strive to come first next year.”
Manager Christopher Young added: “This is fantastic for everybody here, from front to back of house.” Stephen Worsfold, of the guide, said to win the award twice in five years was “astounding”.
Other top 10 pubs were the Baskerville Arms in Shiplake, which was ranked number four, and the Catherine Wheel at Goring, which was placed sixth. Other shortlisted pubs were the Ferryboat at Whitchurch and the Bull on Bell Street and the Three Horseshoes, both in Henley.
