Wetherspoon pubs across Merseyside have all been recognised by their local Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branch.
Liverpool and District CAMRA branch awarded Wetherspoon’s ‘chain of pubs and hotels’ its award for ‘best facilities and pub experience’ for 2013.
Nathan McGovern (left), pub manager at The Childwall Fiveways Hotel, in Wavertree, is pictured collecting the certificate on behalf of the outlets.
Nathan said: “I had the pleasure of collecting the award, for all Wetherspoon pubs in the Liverpool area. It is based on all aspects of a pub visit, from the quality of real ale and friendliness of the staff to the cleanliness of the toilets.
“It is the first time that Wetherspoon has been recognised by the CAMRA committee members, so well done to all.”
Geoff Edwards (right), branch chair of Liverpool and District CAMRA, said: “We are currently running a campaign to improve pub facilities, especially toilets which, in many of our more traditional pubs, are sadly in need of some tender loving care.
“Wetherspoon, on the other hand, always appears to give equal emphasis to what others might see as peripherals, ie things other than beer quality, for example, competitively priced food and other hot and cold beverages.”
