Some of the most important decisions each year, for any CAMRA branch, are about selecting and celebrating the very best Real Ale pub, Cider pub, and Brewery in their branch area.

In North Devon we are spoilt for choice with well over three hundred pubs and a dozen or so breweries to choose from. We are lucky to have so much, of excellent quality, in North Devon.

Selecting the very best of the best to receive one of these prestigious awards is no easy task. However our branch enjoys working through the selection and judging processes to come up with our winning and highly commended choices.
