A PUB in Carrog which first started serving guests over 200 years ago, has been nominated for a prize at the Food Awards Wales 2019 competition.

The Grouse Inn was a farmhouse before officially opening as a pub in the 19th century, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Gastro Pub of the Year category.

Owner Sarah Kenrick said: “It’s great for the Grouse Inn to be recognised for our good food and friendly service by customers and the hospitality industry itself.

“After 23 years of running the business, I still love making sure we are consistently delivering a high quality service. It’s a real team effort.”

The Grouse Inn itself overlooks an ancient stone bridge of five arches, which connects Carrog’s railway station to the village community.
