CAMRA Branch Awards


CAMRA in West Cumbria makes awards throughout the year to our real ale serving premises, recognising continued excellence and meritable achievements.

In some cases our premises go on complete at county, regional and national level.

Many of the premises in these Guides have been recipients of such awards over the years. As an indication, and for currency, we have included details in the entries, of awards made over the last three years. These are :
