A west Norfolk pub has been recognised as part of a national award celebrating rural businesses.

The Angel in Watlington, near Downham Market, has been nominated for a Rural Oscar award in the Countryside Alliance awards.

The annual awards, which are now open for public nomination, is a celebration of British food and farming, enterprise and heritage.

Emily Phipps and Richard Crouch, the pub's landlords, said they were delighted the Angel has been listed in the pub category in the awards.

Miss Phipps said: "It's absolutely brilliant to have been nominated as it is completely by public vote.
