Gloucestershire Pub Voted Best Pub in Britain!

15th February 2008

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, today announced that the Old Spot in Dursley, Gloucestershire, has won the prestigious ‘National Pub of the Year' title.

The National Pub of the Year competition analyses all the criteria that makes a good pub including the quality of the beer, atmosphere, décor, customer service, clientele mix and value for money. The award will be presented to the pub on Friday 15th February in the build up to Community Pubs Week which starts on Saturday 16th February.

The Old Spot Inn is described in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide 2008 as 'This 100 year old free house, named after the Gloucestershire Old Spot pig, has been sympathetically restored by its owner, Ric Sainty. The intimate atmosphere is enhanced by log fires and brewery memorabilia. As well as Uley's Old Ric, named after the owner, it offers five guest beers, mainly from micro-brewers, served in five separate drinking areas.'

Julian Hough, CAMRA's Pubs Director and one of the final judges said, "The Old Spot Inn is a great example of how successful a well-run community pub can be. I would like to congratulate everybody at the Old Spot Inn on being judged Britain's finest pub."
