Here are the friendliest, all-round best pubs in the UK, according to CAMRA

Weavers Real Ale House, Kidderminster, Worcestershire

This micropub is deceptively spacious inside, with bench seating along the sides, plenty of tables and a conversational atmosphere, something that CAMRA holds as an absolute essential for any self-respecting pub

Gary Timmins, CAMRA regional director for the West Midlands, said the Weavers “has helped spur a real ale revival in pubs across the town.”

The judges liked the Weavers’ friendly, welcoming staff, sociable atmosphere and generous selection of ales and ciders, all of which have made the pub “a must-visit venue” for locals and tourists alike.

“Above all, the greatest credit is due to the bar team whose friendliness, knowledge and enthusiasm shine through whenever anybody enters, and help to make it into an outstanding pub.”


Owner Dean Cartwright took over the pub just two years ago, and said the team is “over the moon” to be on the shortlist after investing in the Weavers’ fresh new look

“While we’ve slightly modernised it and extended the beer range, we’ve also retained the quirky ‘front-room’ feel to the pub.

“It’s just amazing to be this far in the competition out of thousands of pubs across the country – it means a lot to know how much some people care about the pub.”
