A Doncaster town centre pub has been named as one of the best in Britain.
The Corner Pin on St Sepulchre Gate West was listed in the rundown by the Campaign For Real Ale.
The list of more than 200 Local Pubs of the Year has been launched to help launch April’s Community Pubs Month.
CAMRA volunteers across the UK judge the pubs in their area to find their Branch’s Pub of the Year - looking at decor, value for money, customer service, and of course, the quality of their real ale. The local branch winners then go forward to battle it out in the regional heats in their quest to become National Pub of the Year, announced in early 2016.
“Community Pubs Month is about highlighting the important role pubs play in Community life and no pubs are better examples of fantastic locals than these two hundred CAMRA branch winners. Each one of them has been judged the best in their respective area and are well worth seeking out for any would-be ale lovers,” said Tom Stainer, CAMRA Head of Communications.
Recent CAMRA research showed 75% of pub-goers believe a well run community pub is as important to community life as a post office, local shop or community centre – but despite this 29 pubs are still being lost in the UK every week.
“Pubs play an essential role in our communities and are clearly very highly valued, but despite this are still being lost at an alarming rate across the UK. The best way people can protect their local’s future is by getting down there and supporting it – which is why throughout April CAMRA will be calling on people to visit their local pub and support an important British industry.”
This year run in partnership with The Publican’s Morning Advertiser, Community Pubs Month is the ideal opportunity for licensees to engage with members of their surrounding community by running events throughout April. Not only will this improve the reputation of your pub, but could also attract new regular customers.
