The Red Lion in Breachwood Green is in the 2018 Good Beer Guide!

One of our North Herts pubs – which was selected by CAMRA members to appear in the 2018 Good Beer Guide – has unfortunately been wrongly identified by the publishers in the 2018 Guide and the GBG app.

The publishers have shown it in error as the Brown Bear, Breachwood Green, instead of the Red Lion, Breachwood Green. We have asked CAMRA HQ to report the amendment in its publications and correct the App as a matter of urgency.

The pub’s details are here: https://whatpub.com/pubs/HEN/155/red-lion-breachwood-green
