Champions: The Star Inn's, The Pony & Trap's and The Sportsman's owners celebrate their wins

Guests at yesterday's prestigious Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropub Awards took to social media to celebrate their wins, praise other operators and share their experiences of the day. We take a look at the best of the #top50gastropubs.

Host Matt Tebbutt charmed the crowd while announcing the list
