Bromley CAMRA Pub of the Year 2020


Bromley CAMRA is pleased to announce that the Star & Garter has been awarded the title of Bromley Branch pub of the Year for 2020. This is the third 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 offers an excellent range of cask beers, many of which were previously rarely seen in central Bromley, including beers from Arbor, Bristol Beer Factory, 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 Wednesday 17th June – more details will be published nearer the time.

This year we have awarded runner-up title jointly to two micropubs, the One Inn The Wood in Petts Wood and the Real Ale Way in Hayes.

The Real Ale Way, Bromley’s third micropub, opened in July 2018 in a former shop 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 normally includes a porter or stout. Ales are normally from Kent breweries, with occasional guest beers providing variety.

One Inn The Wood was the first micropub to open in Bromley, and is in a former wine bar close to Petts Wood Station. It was the Bromley Branch Pub of the Year in 2015 and 2016, was runner-up in both 2017 and 2018 and in 2016 was also selected as the Greater London Regional Pub of the Year. Up to seven real ales served on gravity from a cold room. Ales are mostly sourced locally but some from further away can be found. Cider and perry also available along with wine and gin.
