Julie accepting the award from John

Thursday 15th January saw the award for the "Most Improved Pub of the Year - 2015"

Broadheath’s Navigation Hotel was the winner. New landlady Julie took over the pub in March 2015 and immediately set about transforming the pub into a venue that welcomes diners and drinkers equally and is equally suited to families and mature customers. Although TV sports have been maintained, they no longer dominate the pub with zoning set up to allow some areas to be quiet while sport is shown in others. There is a full menu, regular live music and the bowling green out back is in regular use.

Most importantly, the quality and range of beers has improved greatly. Pictured is branch chair John O’Donnell with Julie.
