Yard of Ale in St. Peter's has now been judged one of the four top pubs in the UK

The Yard of Ale in St. Peter's has made it into the top four best pubs in Britain as judged by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, it has been announced today as the Campaign moves closer to crowning their National Pub of the Year.

The four supreme regional finalists of CAMRA's Pub of the Year competition will have a chance to win the National Pub of the Year competition, won last year by The Salutation Inn in Gloucestershire.

The pubs are judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix, but most importantly – quality of beer.

The Good Beer Guide's Editor, Roger Protz, praised the top four pubs, all featured in the Good Beer Guide 2016. “Being named as one of the super region pubs in Britain is no easy task, and these pubs have worked hard to maintain a high level of calibre that other pubs around the country should look to. These four pubs will now be judged against each other to be crowned the best pub in Britain."
