  The Bookshop Alehouse - Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2017 Bookshop Alehouse, Southampton is Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2017
We're delighted to announce our local branch's Pub of the Year 2017. This year's winner is The Bookshop Alehouse in Portswood, Southampton. The finalist pubs were each visited by four volunteer judges, who assessed them against CAMRA's national Pub of the Year scoring criteria (which will also be used in the regional and national competitions). The four finalists, selected by CAMRA members before the judging, also included: Guide Dog, Southampton; Royal Oak, Fritham; and Waterloo Arms, Southampton. A formal presentation of this award will be announced in due course.

Online voting is now open, starting the process of selecting our Pub of the Year 2017.
Vote for your favourite pubs. You can change your votes any time before 5pm on the 17th of January 2017. The four top pubs will then be surveyed to the same criteria used in subsequent rounds of CAMRA's national pub of the year competition.
It's a great excuse to visit some great pubs and test out the beer before making your final selections.
