Cheltenham club finalist in CAMRA competition

A Cheltenham club is a finalist in CAMRA's Club of the Year 2023 competition.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has named the best four member clubs in the country as part of the competition, one of the most respected and well-known club awards in the UK.

Among the finalists is Cheltenham Motor Club in Upper Park Street, a three-time winner of the national award in 2013, 2017 and 2019.

CAMRA says: "Located just outside the town centre, this friendly and welcoming club is open to all. 

"The bar is decorated with various motoring paraphernalia and the enthusiastic steward normally keeps six ales on tap, including at least one dark beer, one cider and a range of Belgian beers in bottles."

The three other finalists are Dobcross Band Social Club, Oldham; Parwich Royal British Legion Club, Derbyshire; and Marden Village Club, Kent.

All of the clubs in the competition are selected by CAMRA volunteers and judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix and most importantly - quality of beer.

The four finalists will now have a chance to win the National Club of the Year title for 2023, which will be announced in early 2024.

National Club of the Year co-ordinator Phil Greggs said: "All of these clubs should be very proud of themselves for reaching this stage in the competition. It is a huge honour to be considered one of the top four clubs across the country.

"While each of these clubs offers something unique to their visitors, they all share the foundation of what makes a great club - a warm and welcoming atmosphere, excellent service and a fantastic range of beers."
