The Supporters Club bar and CAMRA
The Supporters Club bar is legendary and a genuine haven for real beer fanatics. Along with a full range of wines and spirits, the Club serves lagers, bottled and canned beers and draught cider and perry.
The focus of the bar, however, is on the award-winning range of real beers from all over the country. Always featuring a mild (usually Mighty Oak’s Oscar Wilde), there are usually eight draught bitters on hand pumps (though as they run out they are replaced so we can get through over a dozen beers a session).
Most recently, in October 2021, we were awarded on of the prestigious CAMRA Golden Awards, celebrating their 50th Anniversary. The only club to receive this award.
The Club was featured in What’s Brewing, the CAMRA newspaper. We have also been included in the Good Beer Guide for a number of years.
The Club has won the following awards from CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale):
