CAMRA SW London Pub of the Year 2011
ANOTHER TRAFALGAR VICTORY
The CAMRA SW London Pub of the Year 2011 was announced at the Battersea Beer Festival at 4.30pm on Thursday 9th February 2012.
All 1500+ branch members received a numbered voting form with the Christmas mailout.
Once again the voting was very close between the top two pubs.
The winning pub was the TRAFALGAR 23 High Path, Merton, London, SW19 2JY. The pub also won in 2009 and 2007.
Runner Up, for the second year in succession, was the Eagle Ale House, 104 Chatham Road, Battersea SW11 6HG.
Third place went to the Sultan, 78 Norman Road, South Wimbledon SW19 1BT.
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 BRICKLAYER’S ARMS in Putney was the 2010 champion.
Our "just for fun poll" in which anyone could vote - not just CAMRA members - can be seen at http://polldaddy.com/poll/5826474/.
If you are wondering why we select the Pub of the Year 2011 when we are in 2012 it's because the award is retrospective - the winning pub was the best pub throughout the year of 2011.
