The Stroud branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) presented their 2022 Pub of the Year certificate on Saturday afternoon.
Stroud CAMRA Chair Tony Hill presented the award to licensees of The Prince Albert, Miles and Lotte Lyster Connolly. The Rodborough pub has been a previous recipient of the award and came top out of 80 pubs in the GL5, GL6 and GL10 postcodes this year, the area covered by the Stroud CAMRA branch.
“There are so many great beer pubs in Stroud, to be named the ‘crème de la crème’ is really humbling,” said Lotte.
“It’s not just about the beer, it’s about providing a pub that people feel comfortable in. And that’s what we like to do, we like to welcome everybody – families, men, women, dogs, walkers and locals,” she added.
Miles said: “Any accolade is a great accolade, of course, but for us personally, we really concentrate a lot on the real ale.
“It’s not the first time we’ve won, and every time we do win, we’re always over the moon, absolutely over the moon.”
