Our main aims are fundamentally promoting real ale, real cider and perry and the traditional British pub. We also encourage the production of uncommon beer varieties and traditional beer styles including stout, porter, mild, as well as traditional cider and perry.

Some of our campaigns include (but are not exclusive to):



CAMRA LocAle is an initiative that promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of ‘green’ issues.

Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale!

Mild in May

CAMRA promotes Mild throughout May. We have encouraged pubs in our branch area to stock at least one Mild during May for the local pub-goers to try.

CAMRA Community Pubs Campaign

With 29 pubs are closing every week and some 40% of people no longer visiting pubs, CAMRA has to do more than ever to support local pubs through these difficult times. Building on the earlier Local Pubs Week, we support the Community Pubs Campaign. More information about the campaign can be found here.

  1. Hi, I and a lot of other Pirton residents are very concerned about the Fox. The last tenant pulled out because Heineken/Star Pubs wanted too large a contribution the the planned refurbishment. In their wisdom Star Pubs has decided to close the Fox until they can find a new tenant. Heaven knows how long it will be until our local is open again. As you will see from the website the terms are not exactly enticing and we feel that the predicted turnover is extremely optimistic. The Fox is a listed building and a registered community asset. Some people are concerned that Heineken may wish to sell the property as a private house following a long enough closure, however, councilor David Barnard has stated that in his opinion is is extremely unlikely the planners would allow change of use and de-licencing. I have written about this to CAMRA head office but have not had a reply. I and many othes would be most grateful if CAMRA could take an interest in this case and work towards getting out local open again. What puzzles us is why have Star Pubs not installed a temporary manager while they seek a new tenant. Surely the business would be more attractive if it was still trading? A friend of mine who is an experienced pub manager and chef has offerd to rune the Fox for free as long as he can make a bit of money on the food. I have forwarded his offer to enquiries at Star Pubs who replied to say that they have forwarded my email to the relevant department. Need less to say I have heard nothing more. Please help!
