Former Nightclub is CAMRA's Pub of the Year

News: February 2016

The Sandford Park Alehouse in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, has been named National Pub of the Year by the Campaign for Real Ale.

The Grade II-listed building has been converted by owner Grant Cook, who put up extra walls, added a Georgian-style stairwell and converted the main dance floor into a cellar to turn it into a pub.

The quality and selection of the cask ales on sale particularly impressed CAMRA judges, but they also considered other factors in awarding the title, including the atmosphere, level of service, value for money and community focus.

To win the award, the pub saw off competition from runners-up The Drovers Rest in Carlisle, Kelham Island Tavern in Sheffield and The Yard of Ale, a micropub in Broadstairs, Kent.
