The CAMRA's National Beer Scoring System (NBSS) has been upgraded and is now fully integrated with whatpub.com, making finding a pub and scoring your beers much easier. Beer scoring is only available to CAMRA members. To start scoring please visit the WhatPub web site and follow the Members Login link, then search for the pub you have visited. Beer scoring our branch area pubs enables us to better decide which pubs get selected into the next issue of the Good Beer Guide.
The Mitre, in Richmond is the latest branch pub to start serving real draft cider from hand-pumps. The Stable at Kew Bridge, Brentford is not a pub in the traditional sense, but a pizza restaurant with a strong connection with cider. If you just want a drink you will not be expected to eat there. They have a very good range of ciders, nine gravity served from the box. Price £5-5.50 a pint. CAMRA has now set October aside as Cider & Perry Month.
Please use this page to report on a Pub you've visited, raise an issue for the Committee to consider, or advise us of any site problems and suggestions.
