Once, twice, three times a finalist…

It’s awards season, and we’ve already announced our inclusion in the final short list of the Grantham Journal Business Awards “Great Taste” category.

But today we have another fantastic announcement to make. In the Leicestershire Promotions 2018 Tourism & Hospitality Awards, the Geese and Fountain has been shortlisted not once, not twice but three times!

We are a finalist in the ‘Best Casual Dining Experience’ category, the ‘Best Pub Experience’ category, and (possibly most exciting of all) the ‘Best Leicestershire Breakfast’ category.

We’re unbelievably proud of making the final in all three categories. It’s such a boost for us, and recognition of all the hard work our staff have put in over the past three years. 

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on November 29th, and we are really very excited about the event.

We’re in the Good Beer Guide. Again.

We’re very pleased to be able to announce that the Geese and Fountain features in the 2019 Good Beer Guide, produced by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) to be the definitive directory of the nation’s best real ale pubs.

Thanks go to all CAMRA members, especially those in the Vale of Belvoir branch area, who submit beer scores to CAMRA’s online national beer score website, which forms the basis for shortlisting and selecting the pubs deemed worthy of inclusion. We also want to thank those CAMRA members who go the ‘extra mile’ by volunteering to take on key roles within the local branches, or at regional or national level. We know what it’s like to pour hours of your life into something, and we hope you know your efforts are appreciated.

We look forward to welcoming lots more CAMRA members to the Geese & Fountain in 2019.

 

Finalists in the Grantham Journal Business Awards

The Geese and Fountain has been named as a finalist in the 2018 Grantham Journal Business Awards.

In the category of ‘Great Taste’, open to all business serving food or drink, whether hotels, restaurants, cafes, pubs, or takeaways, we are one of only three in the region to be selected for the awards shortlist. The competition was looking for businesses that demonstrate outstanding creativity, customer service and top quality food. We’re absolutely delighted to be short-listed for such a prestigious award.

According to the Grantham Journal this week, the three finalists in the category are Dougie’s Cakehole in Barrowby, the Leadenham Teahouse and the Geese and Fountain. Over 200 nominations were received by the paper for this year’s business awards. The final winners will be announced at a gala dinner on November 2nd, held in the amazing St Wulfram’s Church, Grantham.
