About the award

The AA Pub of the Year is selected with the help of our AA inspectors. These pubs stand out for being great all-rounders, combining a convivial atmosphere, well-kept beers and ciders, excellent food, and of course, a warm welcome from the friendly and efficient hosts and their staff.

The Crafty Baa

Vincent, Lisa and Ben Fleming Gregg, owners of The Crafty Baa commented:
“Winning the award means a tremendous amount to us for all the hard graft we have put into making The Crafty Baa possible.”

AA Hospitality said of The Crafty Baa:
“The Crafty Baa is the brain child of Vince, Lisa and Ben who shed their own blood, sweat and tears in building the place themselves. Around 80% of the materials they used were either recycled or upcycled which has gone a long way to giving it a unique style and atmosphere. Set over three floors there’s an array of seats and tables where good food and an extensive range of beers around the world can be enjoyed. Several beers are available on draught and the team are keen for you to taste before you buy.”
