Club of the Year
The CAMRA Club of the Year competition is run in conjunction with Club Mirror magazine with the simple aim of finding the clubs with the greatest commitment to quality real ale – those which offer a fantastic atmosphere, welcoming surroundings and most importantly, top quality real ale served in great condition. All nominated clubs in the competition are independently assessed by a panel of CAMRA volunteers throughout the year.
The Cheltenham Motor Club is the current holder of the Club of the Year title - once which they have won twice.
This friendly and welcoming club, formed in 1906, usually has six real ales and three real ciders on tap, alongside its new bottled beer bar and a Belgian draught beer. The club area has also recently been extended into the former committee room to create a larger seating area. It runs two beer festivals a year and is decorated with motoring paraphernalia and boasts an extensive collection of pump clips.
Runners up in the competition are Albatross Club in Bexhill, Dartford Working Men's Club and Leyton Orient FC Supporters Club which all host beer festivals and boast a wide range of well-kept fantastic real ales.
