A Shropshire pub manager says she has been "blown away" after they were shortlisted for a national award.

The Royal Oak in Alveley near Bridgnorth is running for English Restaurant of the Year

Stacey Morgan and her team took over the running of the Royal Oak in Alveley two years ago following the sudden death of former landlord Dave Skitt.

Dave had run the pub for a number of years and the team has said they hope their latest achievement will have made the late publican "very proud".

Stacey said: “He ran the pub for years and after he died we really wanted to make him proud. The staff have worked their socks off over the last two years and I know he would be very proud of us.”
