A Kent pub has won an award for having the best pub garden.
The Blacksmiths Arms in Cudham, near Sevenoaks has transformed its outdoor space, with a patio and plants, pergola, covered function area and outside bar and kitchen next to a wildflower field.
It also has space for a marquee which is used by local bands who play at the pub.
The gong came at this year's The Stars of Stonegate Pub Partners Awards.
Stonegate Group is the largest pub company in the UK with a portfolio of more than 4,000 managed, leased and tenanted inns.
Anthony Chipps, who runs the pub, said: "I am delighted to have won the award for best garden and for all the hard work that went into making it what it is today to have been recognised.
"Our garden is perfect no matter the weather, with covered areas and lighting, allowing guests to look out at the beautiful surrounding scenery.
"I knew the large garden space had so much potential and I am so happy to see it looking how we pictured it.
"Thank you to everyone who has helped to transform the garden, I would not have been able to do this without you."
The awards ceremony was held at Coombe Abbey and welcomed the finalists, members of their pub teams and their regional managers, along with the judges.
The White Horse in Dover won the award for most improved pub.
Nick Andrews, managing director of Stonegate Pub Partners, said: "Congratulations to all of our Stars of Stonegate who have won awards and those who were nominated, you should all be very proud of your achievements and efforts.
“All of our Pub Partners are committed to growing their businesses and are actively involved with their local communities, putting their pubs are the heart of them."
