North Surrey and Surrey CAMRA ~ Pub of the Year 2018
The tireless selection process (well someone’s got to do it) to choose the 11 local pubs that will be entered in the 2019 edition of the Good Beer Guide gave us a chance to also select our Branch Pub of the Year for 2018. This is the Barley Mow, Shepperton, for the sixth time since 2007. They usually have five ales on, two regulars and three guests. The presentation took place on 5th June 2018 and pictured is Branch committee member Bob Inman presenting long time Landlord John Keary with his latest award. Who else was there?

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.

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.
