CAMRA’s top 16 Great British pubs of 2017

Each year the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) goes in search of Great Britain’s best pubs as part of its pub of the year competition.

Hundreds of UK pubs take part in the competition which sees pubs judged on its atmosphere, service, value for money and community focus, with extra weighting given to the quality of their real ale, cider and perry.

Each of the pubs were judged against numerous other local branch winners and deemed to be the best in the region overall, with a perfect mix of the essential characteristics which make a great pub: atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix, but most importantly – quality real ale. They are selected by CAMRA volunteers and can all be found in the latest Good Beer Guide, which lists thousands of the top pubs across the country and a full list of all the breweries in each county.

Of the 16 regional winners, four will be named a “super-regional” finalist, for the chance to go on to be named National Pub of the Year in early 2018.

“The competition really gets difficult now, as these pubs will compete against one another to be named one of the top four in the country,” said National Pub of the Year Co-ordinator Andrea Briers. “Last year’s national winner enjoyed a huge boost in its popularity from visitors near and far, and all of the competing pubs will hope to secure national recognition from the competition.”

Here we list 2017’s regional winners.
