The Winners’ Drinks!

Get a sneak peek into the Muddy Awards Winners' gathering. Much Muddy mirth was had in Malmesbury's Old Bell Hotel.

We came, we saw, we drank – much Muddy mirth and merriment was had at The Old Bell Hotel in Malmesbury for the Muddy Glos & Wilts Awards Drinks.

Winners (and editors!) quaffed Prosecco and Passionfruit Cooler mocktails and scoffed mouth-watering cakes created by the super-talented team in the kitchen at The Old Bell Hotel, which, ahem, has just been awarded a 1AA Rosette for dining – yes, we were fed well people! Old friends were reunited and new friends made and if we’d been booked in for a 4-star overnighter, there might have been more sore heads the next morning!

A great big Muddy thank you to all our wonderful winners. What a lovely bunch! And also to all of you lot who voted and shouted on social media about the great indie businesses you love. Let’s keep flying the flag for all the small businesses that bring so much colour to our lives.

The triumphant winners

See a full list of the winners here (Glos) and here (Wilts) and look out for posts about these fab local businesses, coming to the sites soon.

Once again, thank you to the team at The Old Bell Hotel for having us and for helping Muddy give out those well-earned certificates and for providing goodie bags with to-die-for handmade chocolates! (They didn’t last long!)

The Old Bell Hotel is looking snazzy after its makeover

Check out the hotel in our Little Black Book – it’s just had a major refurb and is looking mighty fine for it and is hosting loads of faberoo events, including a gin party on Saturday 9 June where unlimited gin, food, live music, a photobooth, chocolate fountain and candy floss could make for an interesting night! See our What’s On guides for more upcoming events.

But for now over and out you lovely Muddy lot. Until next year!
