Welcome to CAMRA Arun & Adur
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.

Just a minute's walk from West Worthing station there are usually at least four ales available on any given day and almost always a dark ale. There is also plenty of choice from a range of six or more real ciders. Congratulations to Les for winning these awards.
