CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, has named its best pubs in Edinburgh and the south east of Scotland for 2019.
The consumer group, which champions real ale, has named nine pubs across three regions, with an overall Edinburgh and south east winner to be named in March.
Pat Hanson, chairman of CAMRA Edinburgh and SE Scotland, said: “On behalf of CAMRA’s Edinburgh and SE Scotland branch and all of its 1200 members I’d like to congratulate the winners and runners up in our annual Pub of the Year competition, particularly in respect of their commitment to excellent real ale quality.
“We unusually have four winners this year due to the tied vote in Edinburgh and we look forward to visiting these four pubs soon to present the well-deserved awards. Separately a panel of judges will be assessing the same pubs to arrive at an overall Branch Pub of the Year.”
