Vince and Leon of The Maypole Thaxted are delighted to announce that they have been named one of the best in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2024.

Vince says “The quality and taste of our cask ales is so important to us, and we take great pride in getting it right. It is so rewarding to us to have it recognised by CAMRA”.

The Maypole Thaxted has been included in the 51st edition of CAMRA’s prestigious Good Beer Guide 2024, considered the definitive beer drinker’s guide to the very best pubs in the country. Just 4,500 out of the nation’s 50,000 pubs are listed in the Guide, all of which undergo a rigorous selection process by local CAMRA volunteers to seek out and promote the finest outlets for real ale across the UK.

Nik Antona, CAMRA National Chairman adds: “This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for the pub industry as a cost of goods and living crisis follows hot on the heels of a two-year pandemic. Huge congratulations are in order for all the pubs listed in the Guide, which exemplify the very highest standards across the UK.
