Community-owned The Hope pub in Carshalton wins another award
A pub which was on the brink of closure until regulars took it over in 2010 has scooped another award.
Community-owned The Hope in Carshalton has won Campaign for real ale (CAMRA’s) Greater London Pub of the Year Award for the second year running.
Each year, pubs across Greater London are reviewed by CAMRA members to find the best one. The pub is judged on its beer quality, its contribution to encouraging people to try real ale and its welcoming atmosphere.
John Cryne from CAMRA, said, "It’s unusual for a pub to win this award two years running and The Hope is a worthy winner.
"It just goes to show what a pub that is owned by the community can achieve. It has real ales of a consistently high quality and a good range of ciders plus a welcoming attitude."
The Greater London Award will be presented to the pub on Wednesday (October 9) at 8pm.
