A Wokingham pub has been named ‘Pub of the Year’ by real ale fans for the fourth time.

The Queen’s Head on The Terrace was named as Berkshire South East’s pub of the year by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) this month.

The friendly pub has previously won four accolades by the CAMRA group praising their real ales.

Landlady Carol Williams said: “I am absolutely delighted. One thing you can guarantee is my real ale, you can’t recreate it and that’s one thing people missed when the pub was shut during Covid.

“In the nine years I've worked here, we have won four of those awards and I have great staff, that tells for everything."

The pub adapted well to the changes during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Carol explained: "We opened up and fulfilled every obligation and jumped through hoops to make sure we could open. It was outrageous, the whole industry was in its knees and whether we'll get back to normal -- who knows.

"Myself and one other team member did last minute food hygiene courses so that we could open, when the government announced only pubs that serve food could stay open. Then when it was outdoor only, we served when it was snowing."

The CAMRA award is handed out four times over the year to pubs that have made a significant contribution towards maintaining a high standard of selling real ale.
