Some of Huntingdonshire’s best pubs with go head-to-head for the honour of winning top spot at the awards at CAMRA’S Booze on the Ouse festival, in St Ives.
The winning pubs will be announced during the festival at a trade preview on Thursday next week at 4pm.
Organiser Paul Moorhouse said: “Hunts CAMRA gives these annual awards to publicans we see as ideal role models for their fellow pub operators, in promoting the same values in local pubs as those that are promoted by CAMRA itself.”
The Barley Mow, of Eaton Ford, the Bell, in Great Paxton and Hartford’s King of the Belgians are finalists in the community pub of the year.
In the best local category, the Chequers, in Little Gransden, the Addison Arms, of Glatton, and the White Horse, in Tilbrook, will battle it out.
An award will also be presented to one Huntingdonshire publican for their continued work in the industry. Bob Mitchell, of the Chequers, Little Gransden, Oliver Reynolds, at the White Horse, in Eaton Socon, and Jim Taylor, of the Swan, Old Weston, have all been nominated.
The final category focuses on pubs that have the best selection of mild to dark ales. The Chequers is again in the running as are the Pig ’n’ Falcon and Ye Olde Sun, both in St Neots.
