Welcome to the Arun & Adur branch of CAMRA

Here you'll find all you need to enjoy your experience of real ales and traditional pubs. Whatever you need, we’re here to help and to share our common love for all things related to real ales. We hope you enjoy looking around this website as much as visiting our yearly beer festival.

Follow this link to find more details of our branch and CAMRA as a national organisation. Our branch covers the area between the rivers Arun (in the west) and Adur (in the east) and the A272 (in the north), with the sea being the southern boundary (see this map). This means that Arundel, Lancing, Littlehampton, Petworth, Pulborough, Steyning, Storrington, Worthing and the many villages, all form part of the branch. There are nearly 200 pubs and bars in our branch area and over 155 serve real ale, and there are over 800 branch members.

Beer scoring is very important to the branch as it helps us decide on our GBG entries and chose our Pub of the Year. Here are details of how to do this, why it is important, and the current monthly snapshot of scores for May..
