Welcome to the website of the Surrey Branches of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.
The Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation with over 189,000 members (September 2017) run by an elected, unpaid national executive and backed by a small core of professional staff. It speaks for people everywhere by fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, attempting to improve quality and choice, and trying to ensure pub standards are raised.
There are 4 CAMRA Branches covering the whole of Surrey.
East & Mid Surrey covering Boroughs of Reigate & Banstead, Tandridge, and Dorking
Kingston & Leatherhead covering Kingston Borough, Leatherhead & Elmbridge
North Surrey covering Runnymede & Spelthorne Boroughs
Surrey Hampshire Borders includes Guildford, Surrey Heath, Waverley & Rushmoor Borough
Local information about each of these Branches and details of events can be found by following the links above. If you’d like to receive our low-volume emails, then please join one of our mailing lists.
If you’re unsure which Branch covers your area, it can be found via WhatPub, where local branch is included in pub descriptions.
