The Prince Albert in Rodborough has been awarded Stroud Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA) Pub of the Year award — for the second year running.
On Sunday afternoon Stroud CAMRA Chair Tony Hill presented the award to licensees of The Prince Albert, Miles and Lotte Lyster Connolly.
The Albert topped the table of four pubs, comfortably beating the Ale House, the Stroud Brewery Tap and the Lord John.
Stroud CAMRA spokesperson, Tim Mars said: “The Albert has confirmed its preëminence with, year on year, a growing lead over the Ale House. It has a fiercely loyal clientele — mostly local, but with many who travel sometimes considerable distances to enjoy its unique ambience.
“One of them added this comment to their ballot: ‘The Albert is my favourite pub, and it has also done so much to support its local community. Not just in its consistently excellent range of beers, but in being a welcoming, imaginative and exemplary social hub, which is what pubs are supremely at core.’”
The Albert now goes forward to the next round to compete with all the other Gloucestershire CAMRA sub-branch nominations for the title of Gloucestershire CAMRA Pub of the Year.
