Pub of the Season Twitter Facebook

Vote Voting in the Winter 2016 competition has begun. The deadline is Monday, 16th January 2017

IMPORTANT: You can only vote for one pub.

What is it all about?


Many pubs across the Deal, Dover and Sandwich area sell good quality real ale and cider, support local communities and promote the aims of CAMRA.

We intend the competition to be very much member-led, but each nomination will have to conform to certain basic eligibility criteria, which include:

Once nominations have been received members will be asked to vote for the pub that they believe should be the Pub of the Season.

It couldn't be easier!

Let's get nominating and while you're at it why not submit some beer scores for the pubs you think should be getting more recognition in our branch?
