The CAMRA's National Beer Scoring System (NBSS) has been upgraded and is now fully integrated with whatpub.com, making finding a pub and scoring your beers much easier. Beer scoring is only available to CAMRA members. To start scoring please visit the WhatPub web site and follow the Members Login link, then search for the pub you have visited. Beer scoring our branch area pubs enables us to better decide which pubs get selected into the next issue of the Good Beer Guide.
We currently have ~161 Pubs and bars selling real ale, sadly this number continues to shrink over time.
CAMRA has now set October aside as Cider & Perry Month. The Express Tavern, in Brentford is the latest branch pub to start serving real draft cider from (5) hand-pumps.
Details of local and national promotions together with details of how to obtain the latest local CAMRA Good Beer and Cider Guides. etc
Please use this page to report on a Pub you've visited, raise an issue for the Committee to consider, or advise us of any site problems and suggestions.
