Bath & Borders Branch Overall Pub of the Year 2022
The Star Inn, Bath
Congratulations to all the team at the Star Inn, on being awarded Bath & Borders Overall Pub of the Year 2022.
The Star Inn is arguably Bath’s most famous pub. First licensed in 1759,
the historic interior, which was installed in 1928, is included in CAMRA’s
National Inventory. For the last twenty or so years the Star has been
the principal outlet of the nearby Abbey Ales brewery. Bellringer here
is served in a time-honoured fashion – under gravity, often via large
glass pitchers to your table – but the pub also serves a wide variety of
other beers from near and far. Complimentary snuff is available. The
pub’s multi-room layout is made up of four drinking areas, the smallest
of which consists of a single bench often occupied by older customers,
and sometimes referred to as ‘death row’. The Star doesn’t serve
meals, but delicious rolls are often available; ‘cheese night’ is every
Thursday and live music features on Fridays from 8:30pm whilst a pub
quiz is held on the first Sunday of each month
Bath & Borders Branch Country Pub of the Year 2022
The Three Horseshoes, Bradford-on-Avon
Congratulations to the team at the Three Horseshoes, Bradford-on-Avon on being awarded Bath & Borders country Pub of the Year 2022.
The Three Horseshoes is one of the handiest pubs from a public
transport point of view in the whole of the branch’s area, being only
a two-minute walk (if that) from Bradford-on-Avon station. An old
coaching inn on the edge of the town centre, the architecture includes
an old wooden door where the horses used to go through to a yard.
Behind the pub there is a terrace with seating, where you can watch
the trains go by. There is often live music at weekends. At the bar there
are three constantly changing beers, often from local breweries, but
can be from further afield.
