Pub of the Year: the Wilkes Head, Eastergate

Mar 24, 2012
13:0014:00

We’re delighted to announce that the Wilkes Head, Eastergate, has been voted Pub of the Year for 2012 by an overwhelming majority.

The LocAle-accredited, two-bar Wilkes Head sells Adnams Bitter as its regular beer, with up to three guests. Food is available in a separate dining area, and there’s a large beer garden.

We’ll be presenting the award on March 24 at 1pm, so why not join us then? Stagecoach bus route 66 stops at the end of Church Road (get off near the petrol station/Elmtree Stores) or it’s about a 20 minute walk from Barnham station: turn left out of the station, then turn left into Church Road.

New LocAle pubs

The following pubs have been added to the branch’s LocAle scheme.

Swan, Midhurst
Wilkes Head, Eastergate
Duke of Cumberland Arms, Henley
Stag’s Head, Westbourne
Black Fox, Milland
Four Chesnuts, Chichester

Gribble Inn, Oving (very definitely LocAle, since all the beers are brewed on site!)

We’ll be adding more pubs to the scheme in the future.

Please note that the Bell, Chichester, was listed in an earlier revision of this article. This was an error: the pub has not asked to be a member of LocAle, though they do frequently have a local beer available.

Change to Privacy Policy

We’ve updated our Privacy Policy to reflect the fact that we’re running Piwik Analytics on the site.

Piwik Analytics is similar to Google Analytics, except it’s run entirely on our server. We use this to get a better idea of which parts of the site are most used, and which parts seem to be difficult to find. (Some background: I’m currently working on a new version of the site, so this is the ideal time to make improvements — but it helps to know what actually needs improving!) This data will not be used for marketing, and nobody outside Western Sussex CAMRA has access to it.

For more details, and to opt out of being shown in the analytics, please see our privacy policy.
