Larling Angel is the Norfolk Pub Of The Year 2010

CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) are delighted to announce that The Angel Inn, at Larling, has been voted Norfolk Pub of the Year for 2010.

The pub had previously been selected as the West Norfolk Branch's Pub Of The Year and won this prestigious award in competition against The Mariners, in Gt. Yarmouth, the Norwich & Norfolk Branch's Pub Of The Year.

In a very close contest the Angel was judged to be the best.

Congratulations go to Andrew Stammers, of the Angel, who said he was absolutely overwhelmed with his success and would like to thank his staff, customers and CAMRA for their support.

Andrea Briars (Regional Director for CAMRA East Anglia) said: "This year's competition again showcased two thriving pubs: a town local and a village pub at the heart of its community.

"Well done to both for reaching this stage of the competition and I wish Andrew Stammers and the team at the Angel well in the next round."

The next round of the competition will be judged against winning pubs from five other counties. The winner will become East Anglia Regional Pub Of The Year and will go forward to the final round, which is CAMRA's national Pub Of The Year competition.
