Members vote for the Branch’s entries in the GBG and the top 6 of those, out of more than 130 contenders, are scored by a Pub of the Year (Poty) committee in accordance with the National Guidelines.

Scores are awarded in six different categories including includes quality of beer, focus on CAMRA issues, Community focus, value for money, atmosphere/style/décor, service & welcome.

This process determines our Branch PotY which then goes forward to the Regional competition where we are also involved in surveying those pubs chosen by other Branches in our Region.

Our local rules don’t permit a pub to win for more than 2 years running.
