“The Railway Hotel was severely damaged when we took over 3 years ago and a massive amount of commitment and hard work was required to turn it from a little used locals bar to the full time venue it is today, known worldwide. It’s fantastic to be able to attract the big international tours to Worcestershire and this award would be great recognition for the whole team at The Iron Road, Evesham.”
