North Surrey Club of the Year 2018
There was a large turnout at our Branch Social on the preview night of the 29th Egham Beer Festival. We used the opportunity to once again present the Egham United Services Club with our Branch Club of the Year Award. This is the 11th year in a row that it has won this award and in 2009 and 2010 it went on to become a finalist in the CAMRA UK Club of the Year competitions. Congratulations to all the staff, committee and members of the EUSC. L to R: Bob Inman & Steve Clanford (who select most of the beers and rack them up) CAMRA Chair ‘Spike’ Milligan, Bar Manager Paul Dyer and Club Vice-President Tim Smith.
North Surrey and Surrey CAMRA ~ Pub of the Year 2017
The tireless selection process (well someone’s got to do it) to choose the 11 local pubs that will be entered in the 2018 edition of the Good Beer Guide gave us a chance to also select our North Surrey Pub of the Year for 2017. Our winner this year was the Thyme at the Tavern, Chertsey. They usually have several ales including LocAles in addition to their regular one, and hold regular Beer Festivals. The presentation took place in September 2017 during their latest Beer Festival. Pictured are local member Ken Doe presenting North Surrey award, and Area Organisor Kevin Travers who presented Surrey Award. Congrats to Robert and his team.

How are they chosen?
The shortlist of pubs and clubs under consideration, is based on those receiving consistently high scores on the CAMRA Beer Scoring via What Pub. These are then re-visited by Branch members (all can join in) to ensure beer quality and choice remains high. These are than ranked, and top Pub and Club chosen. The 11 pubs/clubs in North Surrey receiving the highest total number of votes automatically win inclusion in next year’s Good Beer Guide.
