West Berkshire CAMRA chairman Andy Pinkard said: “The Good Beer Guide production was intentionally delayed this year, so that CAMRA members were able to fairly judge the candidate pubs over the summer.

“It’s fantastic to see how pubs in West Berkshire have come through the [coronavirus pandemic] hiatus and how they pivoted their offering to survive.

“If you’re looking for the best cask conditioned ales, then the pubs listed in the guide are the places to go to.”
