18 Kent pubs added to CAMRA's Good Beer Guide 2022

Eighteen Kent pubs have been added to the list of the country's finest boozers for the first time.

The book published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) also shows the number of breweries across the Garden of England has risen to 50 over the last year.

CAMRA national chairman Nik Antona says the figures underline the “resilience of pubs and brewers” during the pandemic – but warns more needs to be done to support businesses.

“The industry is still vulnerable in the aftermath of Covid-19 lockdowns,” he said.

“Breweries still face issues around cost of goods and lack of business rate relief.

“We are calling on the government to make sure the new draught duty rate applies to containers 20 litres and up so all our small and independent brewers can benefit.”

Last year’s guide included the likes of the County Hotel in Ashford, the Unicorn in Canterbury, the Just Reproach in Deal and Corner Tap in Faversham.

The Admiral’s Arm in Queenborough has been a serial award winner, having been named the local CAMRA Pub and Cider Pub of the Year 2018-2020 and Kent Pub of the Year 2019.
