The 4 best pubs in the UK 2019

Each year, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) traverses the UK looking for the nation’s best boozers.

CAMRA’s Pub of the Year competition celebrates sites that ooze old school British drinking culture, with cask ales, open fires and oak beams all prominent features of the public houses.

It is also meant to be a competition that celebrates pubs that play an important role in their communities. Newcomer to this year’s shortlist is the Red Lion in Preston, for example, which became the first community-owned pub in Great Britain in the 1980s.

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 quality of beer.

The four finalists will be presented with regional awards over the coming weeks, before they battle it out next year for the title of National Pub of the Year, which will be announced in February 2020.

“It is amazing to see so many well-respected pubs return to this prestigious competition to compete for the ultimate title of the best pub in Britain,” competition coordinator Andrea Briers said.

“We wish them – and our newcomer – the very best of luck. It is a huge honour to come this far in the competition and be named one of the best four pubs in the country, and all four finalists should be very proud.”
