A pub has become the first in Nottinghamshire to receive a prestigious award from the Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland 2024.

Sean Reddington became the owner of the pub at the end of 2022 before undergoing a £100,000 refurbishment.

The pub’s transformation kept the tradition of the old country inn, blending rustic warmth with modern comforts and contemporary flair, creating a look and feel which makes The Reindeer a cornerstone of the local community.

Sean worked with head-chef Andy Goodbourn and the kitchen team to create a menu which elevates classic pub grub, complemented by a selection of real ales, and themed evenings like pie nights.

The pub works closely with producers and suppliers from the area, promoting Nottinghamshire and its surrounding areas.

Sean is the owner of The Reindeer and The Old Vol in Caythorpe, as well as ceo and co-founder of Thrive Learning.

He said: “What an achievement. Since getting involved with The Reindeer, my ambition has been to create a pub which our community is proud of.

“We’ve focused on great food, great drinks, and great service to bring people together and make a space where everyone feels welcome and you can get your pub classics fix. “Being awarded a Bib Gourmand – especially being the only pub in Nottingham to receive the accolade – really is a honour and a complete testament to every member of the team.

“I’m so proud, and can’t wait to celebrate (over a Guinness) with the team and our regulars who have supported us throughout this journey.”
