The Corn Exchange, in Arbroath, has been named as ‘Pub of the Year’ for 2009, by members of CAMRA’s (Campaign for Real Ale) Tayside branch.
It is the second successive year that the pub has won the title.
Branch members voted the outlet as the best in Angus, one of five territories within its region.
The branch makes annual ‘Pub of the Year’ awards to pubs which ‘serve quality real ale and offer outstanding service’.
Tayside CAMRA chairman, Robin Graham, said: “The Corn Exchange deserves to be congratulated on winning the title.
“Competition among pubs was intense – and it was good to see such excellence in the retailing of real ales.”
The Corn Exchange’s manager, Ian Alexander, was presented with a certificate (now on display in the pub) to highlight the pub’s achievement.
Ian (pictured left with shift manager Gareth Ruxton) said: “We are delighted to have been voted the best pub in our area, for the second consecutive year, ahead of so many others in Angus.
“We always serve up to eight beers, including several from local brewers and offer a superb range of real ales throughout the year.”
