A comunity pub has two reasons to say cheers.

The Shoulder of Mutton in Weldon has joined the Oakham Ales Academy of Excellence in recognition of the quality of the real ales it serves and has made it into the Campaign for Real Ale’s 2013 Good Beer Guide.

Having only re-opened three months ago, the pub is thriving and becoming a community hub for the village. On Saturday, March 23, the landlords will be running a bus trip from the pub to the Leicester Beer Festival. Provisional plans are to leave the pub at midday, sample the range of real ales and ciders on offer at the festival, and drive home via a stop at a mystery pub.

Full details have yet to be confirmed.
