And The Winner Is

I am pleased to announce that the Rose & Crown at Halstead was selected as West Kent CAMRA's Pub of the Year for 2009. This follows the tour of the six finalists undertaken by branch members last Saturday. In an extremely close contest, the Halfway House at Brenchley was declared runner up. Congratulations to not just the worthy winner and runner up, but to the other four pubs which made the final selection.

I'm off to Tallinn on Sunday, so won't be posting for a while. I hope to report on the beer scene in Estonia upon my return.

Fantastic news for one of my favourite haunts. Congratulations to Bob and the team, who run a great, friendly pub with a top ale selection and fresh cooked food.

After a few frustrating years as runner up, it's great that they've now scooped the award for the second year running.
