Make mine a double! The Royal Oak at Meavy has won a double of Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) awards.
The Meavy pub has been named CAMRA country pub of the year runner-up and CAMRA cider and Perry Pub of the year runner-up.
“The Royal Oak at Meavy is a great place for quality real ales and a great selection of ciders” said the Plymouth CAMRA chairman Ian Dickinson.
“The range of local ales is fantastic along with the West Country scrumpy cider, makes The Royal Oak the perfect place for discerning consumers”
He said the awards are handed out after each Plymouth CAMRA branch member votes for their top three pubs and favourite for traditional real cider and Perry. Members take into account the quality of real ale, the pub’s atmosphere style and decor, service, community focus, sympathy with CAMRA aims and good overall value.
