These are the friendliest, beeriest and all-round best pubs in the UK 2018, according to CAMRA

Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has singled out the four best pubs in the country ahead of its 2018 Pub of the Year award.

One of the most well-known pub awards in the UK, CAMRA’s team of experts comb the country year after year on the hunt for the UK’s best local boozer.

All of the pubs in the competition are selected by CAMRA volunteers and judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix and — most importantly – the quality of their beer

The four finalists — who will be presented with their super regional award at local events over the coming weeks —now have a chance to win the National Pub of the Year title for 2018, which will be announced in February 2019.

At the heart of CAMRA’s decision making is community spirit. Last year, the once shut-down George and Dragon in Hudswell, North Yorkshire, won Pub of the Year after locals banded together to form Hudswell Community Pub Ltd and spent two years reviving the old establishment.

“Each of the finalists are different, with both town and village pubs represented,” said competition co-ordinator Andrea Briers, “all of which are excellent examples of their style of pub. This stage of the competition is very tough and all four finalists should be proud of their achievement.”
