CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2022 has been published with pubs from across the UK being featured, including 3 pubs in Cirencester.

The guide is made up of pubs which have impressed volunteers after they visited each one and tasted the beers they have to offer.

Volunteers rate the pubs based on their quality of beer, atmosphere, location and their ability to accommodate real ale drinkers.

Drillman’s Arms, Marlborough Arms and Twelve Bells all came out on top for Cirencester, among many other pubs who serve great pints.
