Pub of the Season Autumn 2021 – George Hotel, Hayfield

Our branch Pub of the Season for Autumn was presented to the George Hotel in Hayfield on Saturday 20th November. The comfortable and welcoming pub is in the centre of Hayfield village. On cold days there is a real fire in a magnificent old fashioned range to sit by and warm your cockles. A good variety of hand pulled beers from the Marston’s stable is available and walkers are welcome. All in all it’s a pub well deserving of the award and well worth a visit.

Club of the Year 2020 – Buxworth War Memorial Club

A small group of branch members braved the atrocious weather to attend the branch Club of the Year presentation at the Buxworth (or Bugsworth ) Social Club on Saturday the 21st of August

A couple of excellent beers were available on the day. Pictured is the club bar manager who was delighted to receive the award. The club allows non-members entrance and it is well worth the walk from either Whaley Bridge or Chinley. (ideally, on a nice day !)

One of these was a first for the branch as we presented the Buffet Bar with a certificate celebrating thirty years presence in the GBG.Not many pubs in the Uk can claim that !

Addtionally, we also presented the bar with our Cider Pub of the Year 2021 award.

CAMRA and Covid 19


Camra is looking into ways in which we can continue to support pubs and clubs during the
Covid-19 closure period. One of these ways is an addition to ‘What Pub’.

Go to and tick the box ‘only show pubs offering takeaways or other additional services’ and enter your town name in the search box.

This may give you a listing of those pubs taking part in the initiative, although at this stage
we are not yet aware of any pubs in our branch area taking part.

If you are aware of any pubs in our branch area offering this facility can you please
email Graham Privett with the details He will make the necessary changes on What Pub

Graham’s email address is :


Above all do not take any unnecessary risks and continue to follow government guidelines.

Stay safe !!
