  Caskaway Tasting Rooms - the 2018C Southern Hampshire CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year Caskaway Tasting Rooms receives our first Cider Pub of the Year award
We announced in March that Caskaway Tasting Rooms had won our inaugural Cider Pub of the Year award. On Saturday 12th May members of Southern Hampshire CAMRA paid a visit to The Caskaway in Oxford Street and Philip King (right) presented the award to Caskaway's owner Inn Grosney (left). Caskaway has a great combination of cider choice and quality, served at a decent price and in a friendly atmosphere. In the competition, seven shortlisted pubs were visited and judged by the branch's Cider Representative (Philip King), accompanied and advised by fellow real cider enthusiasts; Caskaway came out on top with the runner up being The Wash House, Milford on Sea.

  The Guide Dog - Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018 A big turnout at The Guide Dog to celebrate Pub of the Year 2018
Tuesday 10th April saw a splendid turnout at The Guide Dog, Earls Road, Southampton to celebrate the pub being voted CAMRA Southern Hampshire Pub of the Year 2018. Many of the locals were there, along with a good contingent from Southern Hampshire CAMRA and a couple of brewers from Red Cat. Perhaps they were all tempted by the buffet laid on by the pub! Our picture shows Landlord Gary Clements (right) and his staff team with the award.
