PUB OF THE YEAR 2012: EAGLE ALE HOUSE WINS.
The CAMRA SW London Pub of the Year 2012 is the Eagle Ale House. The result was announced by the Mayor of Wandsworth from the stage at the Battersea Beer Festival on Thursday 7th February 2013.
There were seven pubs on the shortlist. As per CAMRAswl branch rules the previous year's winning pub is ineligible for this year's vote. The Trafalgar in Merton was the 2011 champion.
This was a well deserved win for the Eagle Ale House which had been in second place for each of the previous two years.
See camraswl.org.uk/PotY/2012/ for details, photos and videos of the presentation which was held at the pub on Wednesday 1st May 2013.

Friday cloakroom mix up:
Would the holder of orange cloakroom ticket 221 please contact us as your waterproof jacket is still at BAC.
It seems that the holder of ticket 221 may have received the one belonging to ticket holder 227 by mistake.

The CAMRA LocAle initiative is the accreditation scheme to promote pubs that sell locally-brewed real ale, reducing the number of ‘beer miles’ and supporting local breweries.
Several pubs in our area now have LocAle accreditation. This entails a pub permanently stocking at least one real ale produced within thirty miles of the pub.
For more information and a list of accredited LocAle pubs in our area see our LocAle page.
