CAMRA has named their top 16 pubs in the country and pubs in St. Helens and Morecambe have come out on top.
Part of CAMRA’s 46th edition of its Good Beer Guide, published on Thursday, 13 September included details of the 16 contenders in the running to win the title of Best Pub in Britain.
There was no strict criteria as to what constitutes a “pub” and the list comprises of micro-pubs, traditional boozers, street-corner locals and community-run pubs.
The Little Bare Micropub
The Little Bare Micropub in Morecambe has been awarded the title of Best Pub in the West Penines. For a brand new pub this is a huge accolade and proves that a lot of hard work and passion for great beer goes a long way!
If you want to visit – and you should – the address is:
23 Princes Crescent

The Cricketers Arms
The Cricketers Arms in St. Helens has been crowned with the title of Best Pub in Merseyside and for good reason. They were named the National Pub of the Year back in February 2018, this achievement made even sweeter by the fact the pub had almost faced closure only a few years earlier.
Visit them as soon as you can:
64 Peter Street
Here’s a little video about the pub made back when they won the national title.
