The Bridgnorth branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) has recently presented its award for Pub of the Year to the Railwayman’s Arms. The pub, which is situated on platform 1 of the Severn Valley Railway station, beat off 16 other contenders to win. Noted for its choice of up to 10 real ales, the Railwayman’s Arms opened in 1861 as a licenced refreshment room. Independent judges looked at criteria such as atmosphere, pub décor, service, welcome and crucially, beer quality. The pub now goes on to compete against four other pubs from Shropshire, Hereford and Worcestershire hoping to be crowned Marches CAMRA pub of the year. Cheers and good luck from all at WW!
