Gallaghers crowned CAMRA Pub of the Year

Gallaghers Pub and Barbers

(Wirral Globe)

A Popular Birkenhead watering hole has been crowned Wirral Pub of the Year.
CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, has announced their list of more than 200 Local Pubs of the Year to help launch April's Community Pubs Month - with Gallaghers Pub and Barbers taking the top spot for Wirral.

The Hamilton Square-based pub is owned by Sue and Franky Gallagher and contains a fully functional barber shop as well as the more traditional watering hole features.


CAMRA volunteers across the UK judge the pubs in their area to find their Branch’s Pub of the Year - looking at decor, value for money, customer service, and of course, the quality of their real ale.

The local branch winners will now go forward to battle it out in the regional heats in their quest to become National Pub of the Year, announced in early 2016.

Tom Stainer, CAMRA's head of communications, said: "Community Pubs Month is about highlighting the important role pubs play in Community life and no pubs are better examples of fantastic locals than these two hundred CAMRA branch winners.

"Each one of them has been judged the best in their respective area and are well worth seeking out for any would-be ale lovers."

Recent CAMRA research showed 75% of pub-goers believe a well run community pub is as important to community life as a post office, local shop or community centre – but despite this 29 pubs are still being lost in the UK every week.

Tom added: “Pubs play an essential role in our communities and are clearly very highly valued, but despite this are still being lost at an alarming rate across the UK.

"The best way people can protect their local’s future is by getting down there and supporting it – which is why throughout April CAMRA will be calling on people to visit their local pub and support an important British industry.”

This year run in partnership with The Publican’s Morning Advertiser, Community Pubs Month is the ideal opportunity for licensees to engage with members of their surrounding community by running events throughout April.
