I was very pleased to sign the Campaign for Real Ales (CAMRA) Beer Drinkers and Pub Goers Charter, which can be seen here: www.camra.org.uk/charter.
There are many great community pubs in the Blaydon constituency serving natural British real ale. There is a wealth or Tyneside micro breweries who, unlike Newcastle Brown Ale for which production is being regrettably moved to Yorkshire, are investing int he North East and promoting our regional identity. As a result CAMRA have kindly allowed me to use the logo on the left. So there it is! The loss of local pubs partially due to cheap supermarket booze is a great loss to local communities.
My current favourite pub in the constituency is the Golden Lion in Winlaton Mill but I would be interested to know where else readers enjoy.
