The Reindeer, Hoveringham, Secures Coveted Bib Gourmand in Michelin Guide 2024

The Reindeer, Hoveringham, Secures Coveted Bib Gourmand in Michelin Guide 2024

The Reindeer, Hoveringham, has become the first pub in Nottinghamshire to be awarded the prestigious Bib Gourmand accolade from the Michelin Guide for Great Britain & Ireland 2024, and one of only 20 restaurants to receive a Bib in 2024.

Announced ahead of the presentation next week. Bib Gourmands are awarded to establishments which offer particularly good quality, good value cooking. 

The Reindeer was acquired by Nottingham-based local entrepreneur Sean Reddington 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. At the same time, 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 our beloved pie nights. Working with local producers and suppliers, The Reindeer gives diners a true taste of Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas. 

Sean Reddington, owner of The Reindeer and Old Vol as well as CEO and Co-Founder of Thrive Learning, comments on the award: 

“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 an 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.”
