The Good Beer Guide 2023: 50th Edition
About this deal
The last few years have been an incredibly difficult time for the industry, and we need more support than ever before to keep our nation’s pubs open and thriving. I’d encourage everyone to use this year’s guide to visit the very best pubs across the UK and support them for generations to come.” Queralt, Richard (October–November 2007).

There has been a significant change to the format for this edition. It is now split into regions, with an introduction to each section from Laura Hadland, the author of 50 Years of CAMRA, and the brewery information is now split regionally and follows the pub section. It is hoped that this arrangement will make the GBG more user-friendly and accessible. The GBG remains the UK’s definitive guide to pubs that serve top quality real ale, with entries chosen by CAMRA volunteers, with no fees paid (or asked for) for inclusion. Although laid out differently, the unique listing of breweries is still included.The Ship in Conyer, near Teynham Wetherspoon's Eight Bells in Dover is part of the old Metropole Hotel Wetherspoon’s pubs across the UK have been acclaimed for the quality of their real ale – by members of their respective Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branches.
Pubs from Arnold to Worksop, in villages, towns and Nottingham city centre are amongst 4,500 across the UK that have all been vetted by thousands of CAMRA volunteers to make sure they're worthy of inclusion. To be listed is hailed "a fantastic achievement" for a pub. An entry in the definitive beer drinkers guide doesn't do any harm at all and helps to pull punters in from other areas, who join the regulars whose ages range from early 20s right up to their 80s.
