WE’RE FINALISTS AGAIN!
While so much is uncertain at the moment, it’s good to know some things remain the same. The Devon Tourism Awards are underway and The Waterfront is a finalist in the ‘Pub of the Year’ category!
“In the past twelve months everything has been very different for all of us so it is nice to have at least one constant!” says Steve Bellman who, with John Milan, has been at the helm of The Waterfront since 2015.
“As the current holders of this prestigious award, we are really proud to have reached the finals again,” added Steve. “It is also the second year that we will be going head to head with one of our sister pubs, the Three Crowns in Chagford on Dartmoor!”
Things were certainly different this year and, as well as the awards being delayed by various Covid restrictions, the judging had to be undertaken differently and there were no mystery visits this year.
Steve said: “Our entry form – along with our online presence, social media activity, reputation management, and our hard work to be a Covid-secure business have all formed part of the overall results. Manager Jamie Wandless and his team here at The Waterfront should be very proud of what they have achieved.”
“We would like to wish our fellow finalists in the pub category good luck and look forward to the results being announced in March. Hopefully, we will be open before too long and welcoming visitors to our great pub once again.”
