Stanford Arms, Lowestoft named as best pub in East Anglia
CAMRA press release states "As it launches the latest edition of its Good Beer Guide, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has named the top 16 pubs in the country as part of its nationwide search for the National Pub of the Year. The top 16 features a wide range of different types of pubs, from community owned, to pubs which have been in the same family for centuries, to micropubs. The 16 regional winners have been selected as the best pubs in their areas by CAMRA volunteers as part of the prestigious competition, which culminates in the announcement of the National Pub of the Year in early 2017. Each of the regional finalists will now compete in the next round of the competition, hoping to be named one of the four super-regional finalists - and stay in with a chance of becoming the overall winner. All of the regional finalists are celebrating being featured in the new edition of CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, published on 15 September - which lists thousands more of the top pubs across the country, as well as giving full listings of all breweries in each county. National Pub of the Year Co-ordinator Andrea Briers said: "You have to be a great pub to get featured in the Good Beer Guide and an absolutely fantastic pub to be named a Regional Pub of the Year - so whatever happens all the pubs should be extremely proud of themselves."
