The Front, in Falmouth, managed by Matt Reay, has been named both pub of the year and cider pub of the year by the Cornwall branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
Dubbed an all-year round beer and cider festival, the welcoming venue has been pub of the year on two previous occasions and is well known for an ever-changing range of mostly Cornish beers, with the occasional ‘upcountry’ brew.
There are regular quiz and music nights, and The Front is always a popular haunt when events like the Sea Shanty Festival an Oyster Festival are on in town.
The runner-up pub of the year was the Bell Inn, Launceston, and there were highly commended awards for the Red Lion, Newquay, and the Old Ale House, Truro, in the pub of the year contest, and Stable Fistral and Stable Falmouth in the cider category.
A presentation will be made at The Front on Saturday, April 14, from 1.30pm.
