A former business analyst who quit his job in London to follow his love of beer says he is "thrilled" his freehouse has been named Pub of the Year by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).
Peter Tiley, 31, had never been behind a bar when he pulled his first pint at The Salutation Inn, known as the Sally, in the small village of Ham, Gloucestershire, two years ago.
Mr Tiley said the pub was a result of hard work by him and wife Claire, 32, a passionate local community and nine staff.
Pubs can be crucial to community life but over the past few years, as people have changed their habits and are spending less on going out, many have shut.
But now, more community pubs have started opening, where locals have clubbed together to buy their local and save it from closure.
