Camra hails County ales

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Webb’s Of Tenterden Reopens After Fire -

An Ash­ford pub has been praised for the qual­ity of its real ale – by mem­bers of the town’s Cam­paign for Real Ale (Camra) branch.

The County Ho­tel in the Lower High Street is listed in Camra’s Good Beer Guide 2016, which was pub­lished last week.

Branch mem­bers chose the Wether­spoon pub fol­low­ing reg­u­lar vis­its to check on the qual­ity of the real ales on of­fer, and also took into ac­count cus­tomer ser­vice, dé­cor and the over­all at­mos­phere.

A Camra spokesman said: “The County Ho­tel de­serves its place in the Good Beer Guide 2016.

“It is our belief that if a li­censee serves an ex­cel­lent pint of real ale, then ev­ery­thing else in the pub, in­clud­ing cus­tomer ser­vice, qual­ity of food and at­mos­phere, are likely to be of an equally high stan­dard.”

The pub’s man­ager, Si­mon Pitcher, said: “I am de­lighted we have been recog­nised for the qual­ity of our real ales by Camra mem­bers.

“Staff at the pub work hard to en­sure the real ales on of­fer are kept in first-class con­di­tion at all times and the pub’s in­clu­sion in the guide high­lights this.”
