Bromley CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019

Bromley CAMRA is pleased to announce that the Star & Garter has been awarded the title of Bromley Branch pub of the Year for 2019. This is the second consecutive year that this pub has won the award.

After being closed for a number of years the pub reopened under new management in November 2016 and now regularly offers a range of cask beers, many of which were previously rarely seen in Bromley, including beers from Arbor, Marble, Siren, Tiny Rebel and Wylam, all still currently being sold at only £3 a pint. With up to 7 beers on handpump, the selection normally includes at least one stout and/or porter. Draft cider, plus up to 16 craft keg and imported draft beers are also available.

The 2019 award will be presented to the pub on Tuesday 4th June, more details will be published nearer the time.

This year we have awarded runner-up title jointly to the Red Lion in Bromley North and the Real Ale Way in Hayes.

The Red Lion, a traditional pub in the quiet backstreets behind Bromley North station, has been serving consistently good beer to regular customers and discerning visitors for many years and has deservedly been listed in the Good Beer Guide every year since 1998.

The Real Ale Way, Bromley’s third micropub, only opened in July 2018 in former shop premises directly opposite Hayes Station. Up to nine real ales are served, dispensed by gravity from a cold room at the rear of the bar, the range now often includes a porter or stout. Ales are normally from Kent breweries, with occasional guest beers providing variety.
