A Bracknell boozer has been hailed as pub of the year by real ale enthusiasts.
The award was handed over to staff at the Old Manor in Grenville Place by members of the Berkshire south east branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) on Wednesday, June 13.
Branch chairman Nick Boley said: “The JD Wetherspoon brand often divides opinion, but the Old Manor consistently sells a range of excellent real ales, always well-kept, supports local brewers and is in tune with many of the aims and policies of CAMRA.
“It has promoted a love of, and interest in, quality real ales from microbrewers amongst its customers.
“If all Wetherspoon pubs were like this, perhaps the brand may be viewed differently.
“I thank Ian and his team for providing the long-suffering beer drinkers of Bracknell a beacon of real ale in the town.”
