The 16 regional finalists of CAMRA’s Pub of the Year competition have been announced to mark the launch of this year’s Good Beer Guide.

The top 16 pubs will have a chance to win the National Pub of the Year competition, won last year by the Baum in Rochdale.

Pubs are judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix and quality of beer.

The Good Beer Guide’s​ editor, Roger Protz, said: “The Good Beer Guide 2014 is the most up-to-date guide to the best real ale pubs in the UK and is compiled solely through recommendations and independent judgement.

"Unlike other guides which charge pubs to feature, the Good Beer Guide lists pubs on their merit alone and doesn’t charge any pub or brewery for entry in the guide. If you’re a lover of real ale and want to know where the best places in the UK to drink are, then the Good Beer Guide is an invaluable resource.”   

The National Pub of the Year for 2013 will be announced in February.
