Visit England Ratings and Awards
|Visit England award ratings are exactly the same criteria as other national assessment bodies such as the AA. "The awards recognise businesses that incorporate best practice throughout their operation and also celebrate the very best in quality and innovation, helping to raise standards across the industry and secure England's place as a world class holiday destination."
|Pubs that serve consistently good cask ale can gain the Cask Marque award. These pubs are inspected twice a year by qualified assessors, mostly brewers who check up to six cask ales on the bar for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste.
