A year on the Nag’s Head is pub with pride
1:00pm Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
LESS than a year ago the Nag’s Head pub was boarded up, sad and unwanted.
Now, thanks to the hard work of its staff, the hostelry in Abingdon has won ‘the highest accolade’.
It is one of 22 Oxfordshire pubs added to the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide 2014.
They join 47 other pubs which have places in the ale-lovers’ almanac.
The annual guide lists the best pubs in which to drink real ale across the country.
Nag’s head landlord and freeholder Dushan Salwathura said: “I was astonished when I found out.
“It was less than 11 months since we re-opened the pub on October 19. To become of CAMRA’s best ten per cent of pubs in the UK in such a short time is the highest honour you can achieve. It makes it all worth it.”
CAMRA spokesman for Oxford and West Oxfordshire Tony Goulding said the number of new Oxfordshire pubs in the guide this year was unusual.
