Pub awarded for community spirit
A community-minded village inn has been named national pub of the year by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).

Judges said the Tom Cabley Tavern in Spreyton was the "epitome of a community pub".

It described the 16th Century village inn as an "indispensable meeting place for local groups, sports teams and residents."

Landlord Roger Cudlip said: "The key is to get involved and be part of the life of the community."

The award was given at the start of a Camra campaign to highlight the role pubs play in the lives of local communities.

Camra's Pub of the Year competition judges pubs on their real ale, atmosphere, decor, service and mix of customers.
