An exterior view of The New Inn in Cerne Abbas, Dorset, which won the Inn of the Year.
A charming country watering hole which dates back to the 14th century has been crowned the best in Britain by the pubgoer's bible.
The Rose and Crown at Snettisham, Norfolk, was picked for the prestigious title of Pub of the Year from 5,000 drinking establishments around the country which feature in the latest Good Pub Guide.
The 700-year-old pub, run by patrons Anthony and Jeanette Goodrich, took the top spot after the editors of the guide were flooded with rave reviews of it.
Among the winners of this year's Good Pub Guide awards were the Pipe and Glass in South Dalton, Yorks, which was named Dining Pub of the Year, and the Old Harkers Arms in Chester, Cheshire, which was crowned Town Pub of the Year.
The Square and Compass at Worth Matravers, Dorset, won Unspoilt Pub of the Year and the Nag's Head in Malvern, Worcester, was voted Beer Pub of the Year.
The awards celebrate the launch of the 2015 edition of the Good Pub Guide, which was first published in 1982.
