Amanda and Nick Hemming of the Heron Inn in Malpas were judged victorious above six finalists for the BII Licensee of the Year 2022.

This is the fourth time that a St Austell Brewery licensee has won the award in six years.

The couple picked up their winner’s trophy in front of a colleagues and industry friends at this year’s BII Summer Event, hosted on Tuesday (June 21) at the HAC Royal Artillery Gardens.
