These are the best 16 CAMRA pubs in the UK

Coinciding with the launch of the 46th edition of its Good Beer Guide, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has named the top 16 pubs in the country as part of its nationwide search for the National Pub of the Year.

Each of the pubs were deemed to be the best in the region overall with a perfect mix of the essential characteristics of a great pub: “atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix, and most importantly – quality real ale”.

“It is a huge honour to be selected as one of the top 16 pubs in the country, as well as being featured in the Good Beer Guide,” said National Pub of the Year co-ordinator Andrea Briers. “A great deal of time and effort goes into deciding which pub from each region should go forward into the next round.

“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. Last year’s national winner, the Cricketers Arms in St Helens, 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.”

Each of the regional finalists will now compete in the next round of the competition, for the chance to be named one of four “super-regional” finalists – and battle it out to become the overall winner.

The final announcement of the National Pub of the Year winner will take place in early 2019.
