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

Stanford Arms, Lowestoft, Suffolk

Located in the heart of faded seaside town Lowestoft, The Stanford Arms was singled out for its newly refurbished L-shape bar, strong selection of local ales, and its idyllic courtyard garden featuring a woof-fired pizza oven and an aviary.

It’s piqued the interest of CAMRA judges in the past, making it into last year’s Pub of The Year finals, but owner David Burd said the team “weren’t sure if we’d get there again!”

“We strive to constantly improve and are currently moving it towards a good conversation pub by removing the jukebox and pool table. We’re also trying to support local breweries by sourcing an even larger range of beer styles.”

Andrea Briers, the local CAMRA regional director for East Anglia said: “This back-street local pub has up to 12 real ales and ciders available and is well worth a visit. Well done to David and Samantha on their success!”
