The Salutation Inn in Gloucestershire is named one of CAMRA’s best four pubs in Britain

The Salutation Inn in Ham has once again made it to the finalist round of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Pub of the Year awards, one of the most respected and well-known pub awards in the UK.

Pubs are selected by CAMRA volunteers and judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, community focus and most importantly – quality of beer. The four finalists will now have a chance to win National Pub of the Year, which will be announced in February 2017.

The crackling rural free house and brew pub won CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year accolade in 2014 for its inspired selection of ales and real ciders and perries. The pub regularly puts on live folk music and piano sing alongs and has two cosy bars, a lovely wood burner and a skittles alley.

CAMRA will present the pub with its award on Thursday, December 1 at 8.30pm at an event open to the press.

CAMRA’s South West regional director, Gareth MacDonald, says, “The Salutation at Ham stands out as a pub that never rests on its laurels. Having secured the CAMRA National Pub of the Year winner accolade in 2014, it has since started to brew its own beer and is now also has embarked on making its own cider as well. The moment you walk into the pub, you know that it is the hub of a thriving local community.

The Sally offers that rare combination of a very warm welcome followed by very high quality ciders and beers, all served by knowledgeable, friendly staff who are only too keen to ensure you have a great time when you are there.”

Landlord Peter Tiley says, “We’re immensely proud that the Sally has made it into the top four pubs in the UK. We thought we had more than ridden our luck in 2014 so we’re completely shocked to find ourselves as finalists once again. We’ve all worked incredibly hard this year, what with brewing beer, keeping pigs and chickens, making Sally Cider and all the other events so it’s amazing to have that hard work acknowledged in this way. Reaching the top four is a huge credit to the staff and the wonderful community of locals who have supported and given so much to this tiny little pub.”
