Washington pub praised for top beer

Have your say

A PUB has been acclaimed for the quality of its real ale by members of the town’s beer fans.

Washington’s branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) voted The Sir Willliam de Wessyngton in Victoria Road, giving it a listing in the organisation’s Good Beer Guide 2014.

They picked the Wetherspoon pub following regular visits to check on the quality of the real ales on offer and also took into account customer service, décor and overall atmosphere.

A Camra spokesman said: “The Sir Willliam de Wessyngton deserves its place in the Good Beer Guide 2014.

“It is our belief that if a licensee serves an excellent pint of real ale, then everything else in the pub, including customer service, quality of food and atmosphere, are likely to be of an equally high standard.”

The pub’s manager, Richard Freeman, said: “I am delighted that The Sir Willliam de Wessyngton has been recognised for the quality of its real ales by CAMRA members.

“We offer our customers an excellent range of real ales at all times, including those from regional brewers and microbrewers.”
