Regulars at a Hartford pub have raised a celebratory glass after their local received three awards from the Huntingdonshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

District members of CAMRA selected the King of the Belgians, in Main Street, as their 2017 Huntingdonshire Pub of the Year – for the third time.

The pub also won the award in 2014 and 2015.

Jane and Matt Spicer, pub owners, were also named Community Pub of the Year and Urban Pub of the Year.

The couple said: “The advantage of being an owner-run free house is that our valued customers and friends old and new benefit from an ever-changing range of beers, wines and spirits, together with resident extensive menu of freshly prepared food created by our chef.”

The couple are no strangers to winning awards as they have also received recognition from the county’s CAMRA group when winning Cambridgeshire Pub of the Year in 2014 and 2015.
