Campaign for Real Ale

Cider Pub Of The Year

As the best pub to drink cider in is not necessarily the best pub to drink beer in, we also nominate a best cider pub as well as a best real ale pub.

The 2022 Competition

The winner is again the Glue Pot.

The 2020 Competition

The winner is again the Glue Pot but due to coronavirus restrictions it has not been able to reopen and we have not been able to present the certificate.

The 2019 Competition

With its range of 12 real ciders the Glue Pot is very difficult to compete with in this category. JC continues to stock a wide range of ciders from different orchards and different countries!

The 2018 Competition

The Glue Pot continues to offer an outstanding range of real cider, and so reaps the award yet again!
