The Swan in Thornbury, which is part of Ei Publican Partnerships, the leased and tenanted arm of Ei Group plc, has made it to the final three in the Community Hub Pub category at the Ei Group Awards for Excellence.
This year’s Ei Group Awards for Excellence aim to recognise the achievements of all types of Ei Group’s operators from all around the country. The awards will highlight the accomplishments of some of the most innovative and successful publicans across a number of categories.
The final three pubs face a final round of judging which involves an interview with Pub Industry Expert, Phil Dixon. They will then be invited to the Old Thorns in Liphook for a gala awards ceremony where a category winner and two runners-up will be announced.
Sandra Davies said: “We’re delighted to have reached the finals, it is testament to all the hard work the team have put in over the past seven and half years.”

With few public toilet facilities in Thornbury, particularly in the evenings, The Swan has joined a Town Council partnership to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets in convenient locations in the town centre.
It means anyone can use The Swan's toilet facilities during normal opening hours, with no obligation to buy food or drink.
