Our Regional Cider Coordinator has now told us that Chris went on to win the East Kent Cider Pub of the Year. So another great accolade to Chris and all the staff at The Berry.

However, Chris didn't win the Kent Cider Pub of the Year, coming runner-up to the Cellars Alehouse, Maidstone.

Well done to both pubs and best wishes to the Cellars Alehouse as it makes its way through the next rounds of CAMRA's National Cider Pub of the Year.
