The Horseshoe Inn & Restaurant just outside St Neots voted a Most Loved Business in National Competition

February has always been a special time of year for all those in love. It is a time when loved ones go out of their way to show they care. And that’s just what Phill Scott has been encouraging local people to do in St Neots. The Horseshoe Inn & Restaurant have been doing the same and made an extra effort to show how much they are appreciated and loved locally and have won the title as the ‘Most Loved’ business in St Neots with over 300 local reviews, as special mention also to Al’s Tattoo and piercing Salon in The Cross Keys that were only 9 behind.

The Local & Loved awards has seen the best businesses across the UK go head to head to earn the title of ‘The Most Loved Business in the UK’. For the 14 days leading up to Valentine’s Day consumers have had the chance to review their favourite local businesses reinvigorating and raising the profile of their local community. During the competition tens of thousands of reviews were added equating to one every 11 seconds as the contest reached its crescendo. The locals here in St Neots have really done their bit.

Several of the Most Loved Businesses come from our area.

Edible Ornamentals Chilli Farm – 1st place Farm Shop in the UK

The Horseshoe Inn & Restaurant - Also 1st place Gastro Restaurant in the UK

With some fantastic 2nd & 3rd places in the UK from:

Shakie Jakes Milkshake Bar, Swift Stitch Embroidery & T Shirt Printing, K Manning Painting & Decorating, Glycon Ltd,  St Neots Fencing,  St Neots Fireplace Centre, Hamiltons Greengrocer, Parks Therapy Centre, Kingfisher Funerals, Goldstraws Jewellers, Jennies Cakes & Clarity Health & Beauty.

The campaign set up by Phill Scott of thebestofstneots said, “It’s been so exciting to see such a huge number of people actively talking about the great local businesses and demonstrating their feelings by voting in the Local & Loved campaign. It just goes to show how much our communities are supporting their local independent businesses, which is great news for our local area. Independent businesses are at the heart of St Neots and lots of local business owners – and their loyal staff – are feeling great today because their efforts have been recognised and appreciated by so many of their loyal customers.” 


The Horseshoe Inn & Restaurant said the following;

 “It’s so rewarding and a real honour to see how much our customers value what we do. It is great to see people coming out to support local businesses. We are hoping that this Local & Loved campaign becomes a whole year of love for ourselves and other local businesses too, indeed if this is the case whilst we might be winners, in the long run so will all local businesses in the St Neots area.
