A very special award also went to The Crown in Horwich. They were one of only 50 pubs in the country to win in the pubs category of CAMRA’s Golden Awards. These awards celebrate the 50th anniversary of CAMRA, recognising 50 businesses that have made a significant contribution to CAMRA’s aims. The Crown was described by the judges as ‘a grand local landmark…awarded a Golden Award for standing the test of time. It has regularly appeared in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide, now in its 48th edition, and has consistently poured great pints’
Congratulations from the Branch to Gary and Beverley who have made the Crown into one of Britain’s great pubs.
