North Surrey CAMRA ~ Pub of the Year 2016
The tireless selection process (well someone’s got to do it) to choose the 11 local pubs that will be entered in the 2017 edition of the Good Beer Guide gave us a chance to also select our North Surrey Pub of the Year for 2016.
On Weds.20th April we gathered at the Barley Mow, Shepperton to present the award to long standing landlord John Keary. Live music is a great feature of this pub, and our thanks to the jazz band for letting us use their mike. Pictured is John being presented with his CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year Certificate by our handsome Social Secretary Bob Inman. We were joined by CAMRA members Tony, Jim, Geoff, Ken, Chris, Spike and probably some whose names I’ve missed …
Our close runner up for the second year in a row (it was POTY in 2014) was the Thyme at the Tavern, Chertsey.

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.
