THE Druid Inn in Goginan has scooped two top CAMRA awards.
The pub has been selected as Bae Ceredigion CAMRA pub of the year 2017, as well as the branch cider pub of the year.
Bae Ceredigion CAMRA chairman Tristan Robinson said: “Visitors to the Druid Inn get a warm welcome from friendly staff who are passionate and knowledgeable about real ale and cider.
"The pub serves a huge choice of both draught and bottled beer and cider, with unusual options often on offer.
"The staff are happy to offer advice and tasters to customers, and the bottled beer and cider range is promoted on a blackboard and in a special menu.”
Judges also praised the excellent value and quality of the home-cooked food in the Druid and noted the role that the pub plays in the community, particularly by organising and hosting numerous events.
The runner-up in the pub of the year competition was the Rhos yr Hafod Inn in Cross Inn (Llanon) which changed hands just over two years ago.
Landlady Elin Hywel offers a friendly welcome to locals and visitors, and serves a choice of two real ales, often from Welsh breweries, which are of consistently excellent quality.
The other three pub of the year finalists were Y Talbot in Tregaron, the Cadwgan in Aberaeron and the Dovey Valley Hotel in Cemmaes Road.
